St. Thomas’ continues with in-person worship on Sundays with one service each week at 10:00 a.m.
St. Thomas’ is now offering the common cup during services. As we take this step forward and learn to live with variants of COVID, we need to be clear about several points:
- Communion in one kind (bread only) is full communion. You are free to abstain from the cup.
- If you are participating in the common cup, please plan to drink from the cup. Studies show that intinction i.e. dipping, has more potential to spread contagions. The fingers carry far more germs than mouths.
- Eucharistic Ministers are trained in the best way possible to clean the chalice between persons.
If you are not feeling well or experiencing a fever or cold symptoms, we hope you will join us virtually on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. You can find us on YouTube on our channel at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church of Rochester, New York.
