On September 23rd, our Interim Rector, the Rev. Dr. Carol Jablonski, announced guidelines for the resumption of in-person worship services on a limited basis. Attendance will be limited to 25 people/service, advance reservations will be required, and strict protocols must be followed. The services affected are Saturdays at 5:00 PM, and Sundays at 7:30 and 10:00 AM. Full details, including how to make a reservation, can be found under NEWS below: see both the 9/23 pastoral letter and the blog article with links to protocols for Indoor and Outdoor Meetings. Importantly, however, in addition to the limited re-opening, St. James will continue to livestream the Holy Eucharist on Saturdays at 5:00 PM and on Sundays at 10:00 AM. Livestreamed weekend services are available via Facebook. Facebook page (Note: the video will appear on the timeline a few minutes before the service starts.
