Due to the rapidly increasing number of Covid cases and the Delta variant, St. Philip will be following the policy of Multnomah County. Face coverings or masks are required for all folks, ages 5 and up, in all indoor spaces at St. Philip, whether you are vaccinated or not. Following the County guidelines, this will be in place until (at least) February 8, 2022.
Communion in One Kind
We will be receiving communion in one kind, that is, bread alone. Wine will be blessed, but consumed only by the Celebrant. Bread will be distributed in the hand, and you are asked to consume the bread back at your seat in order to prevent unmasking in a concentrated location.
Vaccinations Required for Leaders
All staff are required to be fully vaccinated (and we are). All leaders in ministries that work in direct contact with the public, and especially our children, are also required to be vaccinated. If you have concerns regarding the vaccine, please contact Rev. Maria.
If you have symptoms of even a cold, please stay home! If you are leading a ministry that day, please call a team member to let them know you will be unavailable, and if possible, get a replacement. If you are a member of the liturgy team that day (lector, usher, greeter), text Rev. Maria as well so she also knows about the change.
