Activities at St James’ during the COVID-19 Pandemic are governed by In This Together, our Diocesan plan for reopening churches. The Diocese of Ottawa is currently in the YELLOW stage of our plan, which allows for in-person worship and relaxes some restrictions. Singing is back! So is sharing the common cup at communion (really? read more here). Safeguards such as contact tracing, social distancing and masks remain in place. For more information about what you can expect, read our brochure. If you feel it’s the right time for you, plan on coming to church.
Meanwhile, live-streaming will continue for those who are unable to gather in person. For access to current and previous services, visit http://stjamescarletonplace.ca/athome/
This virus has been with us for a while, but the other virus is fear. The only vaccine that works on fear is faith. Let’s all have a little faith in each other. Be well, stay safe, and be kind.
