Dear All Saints Family,
As I’m sure most of you know by now, we have had a presumptive positive test for coronavirus in Springfield now. At All Saints we want to continue doing what Christians do, which is worshipping the Lord and helping those in need. However, we also want to be responsible in helping to slow the spread of this new virus. During such a time it is important to “flatten the curve" of the spread, which not only protects ourselves and others, but also ensures that our healthcare system is able to adequately address the crisis. Thus, in obedience to our Bishop, and in accordance with CDC recommendations, we will be implementing the following changes effective immediately. The Vestry will be in continual contact with me and we will determine how and when to update our procedures. We are hoping that this will only last for a week or two, but we don’t feel comfortable putting a time frame on it at this time.
