We continue to hold worship services by Zoom as the Regathering Committee works on A/V infracture to allow for hybrid services.

We are committed to a safe opening which will take place in slowly opening our presmise over the course of the next few months. On Saturday August 22, we held our first outside service; we thank the staff of St. Margeret' House, New Hartford. We hope to hold a few more services at this venue. The Wardens and Regathering Committee have paved the way to invite the St. James Day School back into the lower level of our parish hall. Other groups will be phased back in, 2-3 weeks at a time.

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:
