|As you’ve not doubt heard by now our part of the province has returned to the orange phase of the COVID-19 recovery plan.|
Here is the direction St. Paul’s and other churches have received from the province regarding religious services.
“Faith venues can operate under a COVID-19 operational plan. In-person services are limited to 50 participants, or fewer depending upon the size of the facility, with two metres of physical distancing. Continuous mask wearing is required. No singing is permitted.”
You can read these and other details related to the orange phase HERE.
Here is what this means for us at St.Paul’s:
Following the update from New Brunswick’s Chief Medical Officer on Saturday Nov. 21st , and the report of 16 new COVID-19 cases in our immediate region, it has been decided that St.Paul’s will cancel in-person worship this Sunday, Nov. 22nd. It is crucial that we protect our parishioners and our wider community by taking this step.
Thankfully, many of us are still able to connect for worship and prayer online. And so, if you are able to join us online for worship tomorrow, we invite you to please do so. Nurturing our connection with God and our spiritual connection to one another is always important, but especially in these trying times.
The link to join us for worship over Zoom is immediately below:
Our Online Sunday Coffee Time will start at 9:30am this Sunday. You can use the same Zoom link for worship to join us for coffee, or tea, or whatever your enjoying at home at the time 🙂
We really hope you’ll join us for worship this Sunday Online, or if not us then another church that is offering worship online or on TV.
Or if you are blessed enough to have family members at home with you who will pray with you, then pray with them.
It is so important that we be intentional about reaching out to God right now because only God can be so intimately present in our trials and yet so ultimately transcendent that we can find in him the hope and peace and perseverance we need to face everything that we are facing right now.
Wherever you are this weekend and whatever you end up doing, we hope and pray that you will know the faithful presence of the God who loves you.
Family Church at St.Paul’s is all about to helping families grow closer to God together. It’s a time of prayer, reflection, and discussion as a family about our lives together with God.

While public gatherings of Holy Communion have been able to resume with lots of very careful precautions, we also want to support those for whom receiving Communion in public is not yet an option.
If you would like to receive Communion in your home, we would be very pleased to help make that happen.
