Please pray for the residents of Van Rensselaer Manor that COVID 19 is contained and more residents are not infected.
Diocesan guidelines of wearing face masks which cover both the nose and the mouth, using hand sanitizer, and social distancing are followed at all church activities. There is a sanitizing station as you enter the Church with face masks if you do not have your own. The church is marked 6 ft. intervals to aid in social distancing. Communion is by host only.
Our Wednesday Hot Mess Crafters meets at 10:00. Join us as we learn from each other how to create for gifting and donating.
