A&HT Guidelines for In-Person Worship
As of April 17, 2022
Ascension & Holy Trinity is thrilled to share our ways of safely gathering together for in-person worship per CDC, Statewide, and Diocesan Guidelines.
If you or your family members are sick or unable to adhere to the recommendations we have established, we invite you to join us online for our live-streamed service.
What to Expect at our In-Church Worship Services:
Indoors, face masks are not required by those who are vaccinated but are recommended. Masks are available at the back of the church.
Hand sanitizer is readily available throughout the church
Holy Communion will be administered at the altar rail. Communion will be the consecrated bread and wine. We ask those receiving at the altar rail to distance themselves.
The offering plates will be passed through the pews. And the offering, both offering collection and the elements for Holy Eucharist, will be processed to the altar rail to the acolyte.
The Gospel Procession will be in the middle of the aisle connecting the importance of Jesus coming into our midst.
Fellowship Hour (coffee hour) and other eating events have reconvened at this time.
A&HT highly encourages all attendees to receive their full vaccination plus booster.
