Support during COVID-19 concerns

March 5, 2020

Dear Friends,

As we continue to monitor news on the coronavirus, I wanted you to know I’m consulting with staff and lay leaders to consider how we can best support one another in our community as this changing situation evolves. I’m aware that some of you have family and friends in the most affected areas, as do I, and I know you join me in holding them in our hearts.

Common sense health advice is everywhere; as one of you expressed it to me, “Keep calm, and wash your hands.” Gratitude to Gert and Margit for finding hand sanitizer for us; you will find it at the back of the sanctuary, in the Stearns Room, and in all the RE classrooms and public areas of the Parish House.

As always, my door is open, and I’d love to hear from you. Email me at I’m particularly mindful of those who cannot always physically join us on Sunday and ways we can be reaching out by phone. Let me know if you’d like to be part of that effort. 

In faith,
