Illinois COVID-19 Shelter in Place 3/21/2020

 

Beloved,

Bishop Lee has asked all churches to close completely to comply with Gov Pritzker’s Shelter in Place order. We will therefore not be leaving the church open for private prayer, or for the puzzle swap until the order lifts. Unfortunately, our 12 Step groups can no longer meet in the church either. We have been in touch with them, and have offered any assistance we can provide. 

Our Care Circles remain in place, and are bringing a sense of the connectivity of the body of Christ that we are. 

If you, or anyone you know, has need for supplies, food, assistance with paying rent or utilities, or pastoral care, please call the church and select “pastoral emergencies”, or email anne@stgregoryschurch.org. 

Our Communications Director remains in the church building, so if you would like her to light a candle for a specific prayer request, please email her at sexton@stgregoryschurch.org. Sometimes just knowing a candle is lit in a sacred space is what we need. 

The labyrinth is always open, and complies with the Shelter in Place for outdoor walking – as long as you keep a 6’ distance from other walkers. This is a time-tested method for centering your heart, mind, and soul! 

Join us for worship online tomorrow! Zoom begins at 9:40 am, and Facebook live begins at 10am. We will have virtual coffee hour in Zoom after the worship. Because we are not allowed in the building, watch for appearances by any number of the Jolly pets, including Freeman!

Zoom invite:

10am – Virtual Worship via Zoom and FaceBook Live (Zoom starts at 9:40 – FB 10:00)
