Update on Congregational COVID Guidelines: GOOD NEWS!

*Effective July 15, 2021: Download the revised Diocese of Missouri health guidelines to replace all previous protocols.

Thanks to so many of you responding to our COVID Vaccination Survey, we were able to determine what we all suspected, namely, that the vast majority of the parishioners at St. Luke’s and Good Shepherd are fully vaccinated. We are well in excess of >90%. Therefore, we have requested, and received approval of a variance from the diocese on the following matters, which I think we can all agree will make life at church feel much more like normal again.

We Hope to See YOU in Church!

Rev. Earl Mahan, Rector Rev. Dr. Pamela Stuerke, Assistant Priest
• Masks are optional for fully vaccinated individuals, though still strongly     encouraged when children, or other unvaccinated people, or people whose status is unknown, are in attendance. Additionally, when such individuals are in attendance, they (or their parents) will be informed that masking is recommended for them, since masks are optional for fully vaccinated persons.
 
• Congregational singing optional for fully vaccinated individuals.
 
• Coffee / Fellowship Hour following worship in the Parish Hall.
Drinks will be served by 1-2 individuals, food wrapped / prepackaged only.
