What can I expect from Grace?
- Well prepared staff, volunteers and facilities for each phase of regathering.
- Following the science and taking all reasonable precautions to safeguard the community.
- Communications on this webpage, in verbal announcements at services and with additional context in our weekly Congregation Update.
What can I do in the meantime? How can I be part of the church?
- Get vaccinated when you have the opportunity, and if recommended by your doctor.
- If you are eligible, get a booster shot as soon as possible.
- Wear a well-fitting mask, practice social distancing, avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces, and wash your hands frequently.
- Do your best self-care. Focus on quality rest, nutrition and interpersonal connection. Move regularly and take breaks when you can.
- Pray with us. The cathedral prays six days per week as a community, and we offer morning and evening prayers on Zoom. You can also send us prayer requests.
- Ask for help. If you need personal prayer or counsel, contact the staff clergy.
- Stay connected. Whether at Bible Study or Book Group, or through the congregation phone tree plan, Homebound, But Not Alone, for real-time interaction with your fellow congregants.
- Support those who are more vulnerable than you. Deliver groceries, make masks or just check in on someone you know is struggling.
- Watch the Congregation Update for ways to advocate for our vulnerable neighbors.
We thank you for your continued support and participation in the Grace community during these times. Grace thrives because of all the people involved and we couldn’t be more thankful to serve.
