The latest letter by our Diocesan Bishop, The Rt. Rev. Andrew Asbil, dated Nov. 12, 2021, can be read here (click to read)

 

The College of Bishops permits the institution of a special worship service for those who want to be sure that everyone attending is fully-vaccinated in order to accomodate the needs of those who are immuno-compromised or especially vulnerable: "After much discussion, consultation and prayer, the College of Bishops has consented to permit parishes to institute a new worship service – outside of their existing and continuing schedule of services – that requires proof of vaccination to attend. It is the College’s expectation that these restricted-entry services will be the exception to our worship offerings, and not the norm." If you are interested in the details, please read the letter from the College of Bishops here.
