The Parish Planning Council has considered the CDC's latest mask mandates and have made the following changes, effective immediately, for Trinity

The ropes blocking off the pews will be removed and congregants may sit wherever they would like. Congregants will be responsible for social distancing themselves.


Masks will no longer be required but it is strongly encouraged that if you have not been fully vaccinated that you continue to wear a mask and continue to social distance.


We will continue with straight line communion through June.


Coffee Fellowship will not resume until a later date.

CHOIR RESUMES!

Dear Trinity Family,


The CDC has released updated guidelines regarding the safety of singing in a chorus. For fully-vaccinated, masked individuals it is likely to be safe now. With this new information, I feel confident that we can return to musical activities such as choir and handbells, as long as we remain masked during rehearsals and preferably if everyone has been vaccinated. Singing with a mask is not particularly comfortable but it is possible and we'll start slow to get back into the habit. The main thing I need to know is who is interested in participating, so I can find music appropriate to the size of the ensemble. For choir rehearsals, we may plan to rehearse outside under the breezeway for added safety, depending on the numbers and comfort level of those involved.


If you have been in choir or handbells in the past, or are interested in being involved in either one now, please contact me at annecw515@gmail.com so I can plan accordingly and so that I will have your contact information for future updates. I am so excited about making music with you again!

In peace,

Anne Weaver

Music Director
