Dear St. Mary's family,

In our ongoing evaluation of our plans at church, the Vestry and I have most recently considered the following:
• The concerning Covid metrics: locally, statewide, and nationally.

• Advisement from state and local health and civic leaders.

• Our Bishop's most recent directives.

• The necessary but strict restrictions on capacity in our buildings.

• The need to make feasible and safe plans for the Christmas holiday
