On June 1st, 2022 the Diocese of Ottawa moves to the "Green" stage in our Diocesan COVID-19 Plan.
This means that for indoor in-person worship across the parish, the wearing of face masks is optional, although the wearing of masks and the practice of physical distancing remains encouraged. We are committed as a parish community to showing gracious respect for the mask wearing choices of others. In addition, all those attending a service in the Parish of the Valley are reminded to self-assess before coming to worship and, if experiencing any COVID symptoms, are encouraged to stay home and participate online.
As of June 1st, all congregations in the Parish of the Valley will return to using the altar rails for communion, with the exceptions of Holy Trinity Pembroke and St George's South Alice who will continue with standing stations for the time being. Please remember that communion "in one kind" (bread only) is considered full communion in the Anglican Church and no one is obligated to receive from the common cup.
At this time, congregations may also resume passing the offering plate if they choose, and all capacity limits in our churches are lifted. In many parts of our parish, coffee time has returned, though protocols for coffee varies church-by-church based on the space and location.
While meeting in person is definitely a reason for us to celebrate, we also know that some members of our parish may not be able to return to worship in-person just yet. For this reason services recorded in-person at Holy Trinity Pembroke will continue to be broadcast on YouTube and on YourTV Ottawa Valley. We hope these service recordings will offer those worshipping from home an opportunity to stay connected with our parish in prayer. You can find our weekly online service by clicking here.
