St. Brendan's Reopening Survey
St. Brendan’s Family,
As we work to develop a plan for the eventual reopening of St. Brendan’s for in-person worship, we need your input. At the end of this note, you will find a link to a survey that will help us better prepare to reopen St. Brendan’s.
Before you fill out the survey, please review some of the rules parishioners and visitors will have to abide by when we do open our doors for in-person worship:
Anyone who is feeling sick or showing symptoms associated with COVID-19 (such as fever, coughing, sore throat, shortness of breath, or a recent loss of taste or smell) should not attend in-person worship. Anyone who has tested positive for or has come into contact with someone who has COVID-19 should refrain from coming to in-person worship until they have self-quarantined and received a negative test.
Social distancing measures will require individuals/families to maintain a distance of 10 feet from other individuals/families while in the building.
Masks will be required. (Please bring a mask with you).
Prayer books and hymnals will not be used.
Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the building, and you are encouraged to use it.
Only a specified number of people will be able to attend service in the sanctuary.
There will be no congregational singing. (Music will be provided by the music director).
The nursery will be closed. (Sunday school is closed for summer break, and will remain closed until it is deemed safe to resume).
Hospitality hour is canceled until further notice.
The working group will develop a list of procedures—to be approved by Fr. Regis and the Vestry, and announced later—around entering and exiting the church, donation collection, the sign of peace, communion, sign-ups for attendance, cleaning between services, and other important details about the service to keep our churchgoers safe. Your survey answers will help us develop these comprehensive plans.
Please only submit one survey per household.
Thank you for blessing us with your valuable input as we prepare to welcome the St. Brendan’s family back to a safe worship environment.
