A Message from our Rector

I lift up my eyes to the mountains

   Where does my help come from?

 

My help comes from the Lord,

    The Maker of heaven and earth. (Psalm 121)

 Tuesday, March 17, 2020

Good morning dear friends,

      I pray the dawn of this day brings with it, for you, places of abundance and joy, that you feel, like the rays of warm sun on your skin, God's grace.  These are indeed difficult times that are changing so rapidly that we barely have processed one piece of information before we are hit with another.

      I write this morning to share with you the heavy news that our bishop, Marian Budde, has as of yesterday afternoon extended the closure of all of our churches through May 16th, 2020.  This is in keeping with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s most recent recommendation to cancel or postpone all gatherings of 50 or more people for the next 8 weeks and in consultation with the Presiding Bishop.

 We are all grappling with the gravity of the times in which we find ourselves, the diocesan staff and clergy will be gathering over the next two days via conference call to make plans as best we can to weather this storm and to continue to be the body of Christ and do the work that God calls each of us individually and all of us collectively into.

 I will continue to work on ways that we can be together virtually and encourage all of us to be present with each other through prayer, via email, text and phone calls. As more information and plans become solid (whatever that means in this time) I will pass them along. For now let us remember these words from the prophet Zephaniah; “Yahweh, your God, is in the midst of you, a mighty one who will save. He will rejoice over you with joy. He will calm you in his love. He will rejoice over you with singing.”

 In Christ,

Rev. Leslie

An Important Message from Our Rector, Rev. Leslie St. Louis
All Church Services suspended until March 25

NEWS FROM OUR BISHOP

Wed, Mar 11, 2020

Dear Friends,

It is with great sadness but also with the abundance of caution that I share with you the news that Bishop Budde has ordered that all churches and their buildings be completely closed until March 25, including weekday activities and Sunday services. As we all come to understand and grapple with the gravity of the Coronavirus Pandemic we can rest in the assurance that God is in the midst of us leading and guiding our way and providing comfort in our places of anxiety.

Both Laurie and I will continue to work remotely and be available by email and I am always available by cell phone. It is of utmost importance that we work to limit the exposure risk associated with the spread of this virus. I will be working tomorrow to come up with ways that we can be connected on Sunday morning and get that information out to you as soon as it is complete.


In Christ,
Rev. Leslie
Leslie St. Louis

Holy Trinity - The Best You
