Being Church Differently for the Welfare of All
In-Person Worship in St. John’s has been suspended until May 10th.
“As your bishop, I care deeply for the well-being of all our people and for the communities we serve. As Christians, we are called always to love one another as God loves us, caring for the most vulnerable among us. There are many unknowns about the current public health crisis, but this much is clear – social distancing is an essential part of our collective response.
Many of you may have already seen Governor Whitmer’s new advisory … urging people to avoid large gatherings to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. In light of this recommendation … I am directing congregations to refrain from coming together for in-person worship for the recomended 8 weeks (May 10th).”
– The Rt. Rev. Whayne M. Hougland, Jr.,
Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Western & Eastern Michigan.
