on . Posted in Church to Reopen.


We hope and pray that you are well.

As a direct result of Governor Newsome’s policy issued just this week, V. Rev. Fr. John Constantine, the Chancellor of our Metropolis has informed us that once again churches in California are to close effective immediately and return to the procedures followed at the beginning of the stay-at-home orders in the early days of the pandemic.

We are, once again, prohibited from gathering inside the Church. Please stay home and safe on Sunday July 19, and join in prayer, by visiting our online broadcast.

Regrettably all reservations through Sign-Up Genius are now suspended. The authorized team members inside the Church will be:

  1. The Priest (Fr. Gary)
  2. Chanter (Christie)
  3. Altar Assistant (Bill)
  4. Narthex usher (Sophia)
  • Each of these individuals are from the same households, which limits exposure rates.

We will evaluate and share information as things progress.

On Behalf of our Re-Opening Committee, and your Parish Council,

In Christ's Service,
Fr. Gary
