Due to the updated orders from the Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, effective immediately, we are required to limit attendance at in-person worship services to 50% of the building capacity AND to require all participants and attendees (12+) to be vaccinated (i.e. two vaccinations).
The size of the St Catherine's sanctuary (300 capacity), means that we are limited to 150 people in attendance and we are requiring all in attendance to show a Vaccine Passport.
Greeters will ask you to show your vaccine passport when you arrive at the Lobby entrance. Once you have shown it once, we will have it on file. If you are unable to show a vaccine passport, you will be required to return home to watch the live-streamed service.
A reminder that in worship, we must always wear masks (unless we are speaking or singing solo). If you are not vaccinated, I encourage you to join livestreamed worship and to consider the online spiritual practice group at 8pm on Tuesdays.
There will NOT be coffee time during the current restrictions.
Together with Bishop John and the wardens of St Catherine's, I offer my prayers for the safety and wellbeing for each one of you as we continue our safety response to the COVID-19 virus.
Our wardens - Robb Watt, Linda Robertson and Chris Wensley - are available for conversation and support should you or your family have any questions or concerns about these protocols.
