All Souls Church at The West Village Meetinghouse
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 9 – WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2021
Dear Members and Friends of All Souls Church –
Due to the growing number of covid cases, even among folks who are vaccinated, safety is our priority. The ASC Board and Rev. Telos have agreed that we need to continue holding our worship services by Zoom through at least the month of September.
We know that many of us have been eagerly awaiting the time when we can gather for worship in person. Hopefully this time will come soon. The Reopening Task Force and Board will continue to monitor area covid statistics.
We are glad that we are able to gather virtually so as to support the health and safety of our community.
for the ASC Board of Trustees
FROM THE ASC REOPENING TASK FORCE:
Given the spread of the Delta variant and the emergence of new Covid variants:
- All Souls Church requires masks to be worn inside the West Village Meeting House. This requirement applies to congregants, renters and visitors, regardless of vaccination status.
- All persons are encouraged to get vaccinations and booster shots as they are eligible.
- All Souls Church worship services will not include in-person singing or use of wind instruments.
- Refreshments will not be provided during the traditional service “coffee hour” which will be more simply a time for conversation and discussion.
