We are committed to a safe opening which will take place in slowly opening our presmise over serveral months in 2021.

View the Rt. Rev. Dr. DeDe Duncan-Probe's November 2020 message for a "Faithful response to the COVID-19 coronavirus" by clicking on the link (image) below.

"Indoor in-person gatherings are suspended in all parishes of the Episcopal Diocese of Central New York beginning November 29, 2020. Robust online worship and opportunities for learning and connection continue. Outdoor and “drive-in” gatherings, with Holy Eucharist, are permitted, as is live-streaming and recording worship from within church buildings. Essential community outreach ministries continue."

Our role in responding, as churches, dioceses and compassionate Christians, is to:

  • Combat fear with knowledge in order to encourage preparedness and decrease stigma.
  • Maintain operational continuity and continue worship life in the case of potential quarantine and disruption. 
  • Show God’s compassion and care to those in our communities who are affected

Faith-based response to epidemics from ER-D  (Episcopal Relief and Development)
An epidemic is a large-scale outbreak of an infectious disease, such as influenza or coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Our role in responding, as churches, dioceses and compassionate Christians, is to:

  • Combat fear with knowledge in order to encourage preparedness and decrease stigma.
  • Maintain operational continuity and continue worship life in the case of potential quarantine and disruption.
  • Show God’s compassion and care to those in our communities who are affected.
