Masks Restrictions Easing this Weekend (June 12/13)

We ask the following:
  • ALL UNVACCINATED PEOPLE ARE ASKED TO CONTINUE WEARING MASKS AT ALL TIMES
  • FOR VACCINATED PEOPLE
    • WHEN ENTERING THE CHURCH – Please Mask
    • WHEN WALKING DOWN AISLES – Please Mask
    • WHEN COMING TO COMMUNION – Please Mask
    • WHEN SITTING IN THE PEW – Wearing a mask is optional.
  • FOR ALL – Please continue to respect the social distancing practices we have in place (blocking every other pew, asking each other to be aware of proximity to neighbors)
The staff regularly discusses our COVID restrictions each week at are staff meeting, listening to the concerns and opinions of our diverse community. We know some still are cautious and hesitant about easing restrictions, and we also hear the frustration of those who wish the masking restrictions to be lifted.
Our reasoning for moving to this compromise is stemmed from:
  1. Continuing declining rates of COVID in the Denver/Adams/Jefferson county areas, the increasing vaccination rates, though we fully acknowledge that COVID is still present
  2. The CDC recommendations noting that:
    1. COVID-19 vaccines are effective at preventing COVID-19 disease, especially severe illness and death.
    2. COVID-19 vaccines reduce the risk of people spreading COVID-19.
    3. BUT also aware that, though early data shows an effectiveness of preventing the spread of disease, a more complete dataset of the full effectiveness of preventing spread, particularly to vulnerable people, is pending
  3. The effectiveness of individuals keeping social distancing, washing hands, and masking (even if just themselves) significantly reduces the risk of contracting the disease.
We are always open to feedback, and if you have concerns or comments, please do not hesitate to reach out to have your voice heard.

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Sacrament of the Eucharist.

I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul.

Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally,

I invite you to enter into my heart with your Spirit.

I embrace you with my mind, my heart, and my soul.

Please, never permit me to be separated from you.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
