Dear St. Michael’s family,
We hope that you are continuing to keep safe and well as the Covid Pandemic continues.
As you are aware, we resumed worship in our church September 13, and have continued for the last two weeks, following the strict protocols of the Diocese with regards to the number of people allowed, social distancing and proper cleaning and sanitization of our sanctuary and other areas. Attendance at the three services were 14, 9 and 6 respectively. We continue to encourage you to come out if you are able to, however, we understand and respect your decision not to attend if you do not yet feel comfortable doing so.
Given the reduced attendance, and looking ahead at the potential for a second lockdown due to the rising number of Covid cases, the wardens have decided to reinstitute the Thursday offering day, to allow parishioners to once again drop off their offerings at the church. Beginning Thursday, October 8, we will be at the church every other Thursday between 10am to 12pm to receive your offerings. The following are the dates for collection of offerings for October and November. December dates will be posted later.
October 8, October 22, November 5, November 19, 2020.
We thank you for continuing to support the upkeep of our church financially and remind you of the alternative methods of submitting your offering such as E-transfer, Pre-authorized Remittance (PAR) as well as online through Canada Helps.org. You can contact one of the wardens to get information on how to use any of the above methods.
We look forward to seeing you either at church on Sundays or Thursdays in the coming weeks. May God bless you and your families and keep you safe and healthy.
The Warden’s Team
