Thanksgiving Service

November 26, 2020  online

Out of an abundance of caution, our Thanksgiving Day service will be offered online only this year.  It will be available on our YouTube channel and Facebook page starting at 8:30am on Thursday, November 26.


Warm Thanksgiving greetings to you and yours!

Sunday, November 29

In-person worship - starting November 29,  the 11 am service is at All Saints’ Chapel. If it is prudent for you to attend, we hope to see you there! Attached are the bulletins for the 8:30 am Morning Prayer and the 11:00 am Holy Eucharist.

Some practicalities about attending All Saints’:  The current maximum capacity including those “up front” is 100 people.  Everyone should enter the west door.  In addition to taking your temperature, ushers will ask you to respond to a COVID screening poster and will write down the names of all attendees in case contact tracing becomes necessary.  Since this process of entry will take longer than usual, please plan to arrive a little early and bear with the process. 


Once inside, keep masked and maintain 6 feet of distance at all times from anyone you don’t live with.  You may be seated in the rows that have yellow “Please sit here” cards at the ends, but not in other rows.  If it’s not possible to avoid going to the restroom while at All Saints, you may reach one by walking through the arch to the congregation’s left and turning down the hallway to your left.  

Worship will continue to be offered online at 8:30 and afterward on our Facebook page and at 11:00am and afterward on our YouTube channel.
