Registration for In-Person Worship Services & for Holy Communion

Beginning June 20, face masks, social distancing, and pre-registration for worship are optional for those that are fully vaccinated (2 weeks after final dose) or have recovered from COVID-19. We will still reserve a portion of the sanctuary for socially distant, masked seating for those that need or want it. Online worship will also continue. We kindly ask that you pre-register for socially distant seating so that we know how much space to reserve. Click the button below to pre-register.

We are also pleased to announce that Holy Communion has returned to worship in a modified fashion! More info will be given during worship. Thursday communion has been discontinued, but we will continue to offer socially distant communion liturgies the 2nd Saturday of the month (registration required). Be familiar with our Holy Communion beliefs and practices before registering for communion.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate the challenges of COVID-19. Taking precautions and being flexible is a way to serve the Lord and help keep everyone safe! For more info read the guidelines below.

COVID-19 Guidelines for Worship and Holy Communion at St. Paul's

  • If showing any symptoms, please stay home.
  • If you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days, please stay home until released from quarantine.
  • If you have been requested to quarantine, please stay home until released from quarantine.
  • Masks, social distancing, and pre-registration are optional for those that are fully vaccinated (2 weeks after final dose) or have recovered from COVID-19. Per NYS and CDC guidance, those not fully vaccinated are requested to wear a mask in the building and stay 6 feet from those outside their household. We will be relying on the integrity of the St. Paul's community to follow this guidance.
  • Socially distanced, masked seating will be available for those that need or want it. We kindly ask that you pre-register so that we know how much space to rope off.
  • Kindly follow the directions of the ushers when entering and exiting the worship space.
  • Hand sanitizer is available for use upon entry into the building.
  • High touch surfaces (including pews) are regularly cleaned by our custodial staff.
  • There will be no coffee hour, paper bulletins, passing of the offering plate, common cup at communion, or physical sharing of the peace.

As in all cases of public interaction during the pandemic, each worshipper is responsible for assessing their own level of comfort with the possibility, however remote, of exposure to the coronavirus. If for any reason (age, health concerns, etc.) you do not feel comfortable attending in-person worship, please stay home. Online worship continues to be available.
