DIOCESE AND ALL SAINTS’ TO ENTER
STEP THREE ON THE JOURNEY
TO GATHERING ANEW
Beginning the week of September 9, 2020, the Diocese of Central New York and All Saints’ Church will enter Step Three of “Gathering Anew.” In this step limited in-person gatherings of 50 or less for worship are permitted. As in Step Two, in Step Three celebrations of Eucharist conveyed in Bread only with safety precautions are permitted.
In addition to allowing worship in-person attendance of 50 or less, Step Three allows for there to be one soloist who must be at least 15 feet distanced from others and preaching may be done with the mask removed if there is at least 15 feet of distance from the pulpit to occupied pews. Prevention of the spread of COVID-19 continues to be a priority. Therefore, excepting a raise in the COVID-19 infection rate in the Diocese of Central New York, at All Saints’ there will two short services of Holy Communion offered for a maximum of 50 people in-person (including clergy, readers, ushers and musicians): Saturdays at 5:00 pm and Sundays at 10:30 am. “Dwelling in the Word” will still be held every Sunday at 9 am by Zoom only. Compline on Thursdays at 8 pm and Evening Prayer on Sundays at 5 pm will be offered by Zoom and FaceBook Live.
Since 50 is near to All Saints’ pre-COVID-19 average attendance, at this time there is no longer a need to call ahead and reserve a place. However, it is required that everyone in attendance sign-in when they arrive in the Narthex and leave contact information.
The two weekend in-person services will also be available by Zoom and on Facebook Live. Please if you are sick or of a vulnerable population, stay at home and join the service online or by phone.
In addition to Holy Communion being offered in Bread only, everyone must wear a mask which covers both nose and mouth, wash hands or use hand sanitizer when entering and leaving church and before and after receiving Communion. There will be no congregational singing—only instrumental music and one soloist. All those attending are asked to practice 6 feet of physical distancing and there is to be no physical contact—handshakes or hugs. The Peace may be “passed” by remaining in place and bowing, waving, or practicing the sign-language “peace.” Everyone who receives Communion is asked to consume the Host when they return to their pew, briefly removing their mask to do so. There will be no “Coffee Hour.” Because of COVID precautions there is no nursery.
