St. Luke's Episcopal Church, Manchester, MO

Masking Returns

While most of our parishioners are already vaccinated, the risk posed by the new Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus warrants new precautions.  As we gather for public worship, we will do our part to help in stopping the spread of the virus.  Please read the message below from Bishop Deon Johnson and let us continue to pray for the health and well being of all people.

“While I know that this in many ways poses a challenge in some communities where masks are not required, it is in many ways an opportunity for us to once more stand together as a Diocesan household united as the Body of Christ. I urge you to encourage those who are eligible, to be vaccinated as soon as possible.”

UPDATE: (September 1, 2021) Face mask mandate extended indefinitely for in-person worship.

Bishop Deon Johnson has extended the face mask mandate for all in-person worship throughout the Diocese of Missouri until further notice. We continue to place the highest priority on the safety of all those in our communities.
