Whitsunday – The Day of Pentecost May 23, 2021

This was our “soft regathering” Sunday as Fr. Brent put it. There were nearly 50 people in the pews and almost as many trying to watch on Zoom or YouTube live. I say “trying” because there were serious sound issues that were not evident in the Church. We apologize for that. The problems were very evident on the video recorded on the laptop by the Baptismal Font.

For that reason we may not be able to post a full service this week. Our hope is the issues will be resolved before next Sunday. However, the good news is that virtually all COVID restrictions imposed by the State of Maine are being lifted.  This includes those requiring masks, social distancing, limited seating, and prohibitions on singing.  In short, come Trinity Sunday, May 30,  (NEXT WEEK) we’re back at church much like we used to be!

  • Every-other side pew will be closed for those seeking more physical distance. 
  • Masks are not required, but are encouraged if that makes you more comfortable.

Vaccinations required For the safety of the most vulnerable, only fully vaccinated* people may attend in-person worship.  Exceptions will be made for those unable to be vaccinated due to health conditions or eligibility (such as children under 12).
If you are not fully vaccinated, you would put our children and others who may be medically fragile at higher risk.  
PLEASE do the loving thing and get vaccinated, if not for yourself, then for our children. If you have any questions, please contact Fr. Brent *fully vaccinated means your final shot plus two weeks.
