In-person worship services have reopened. Our senior commanders and leadership realize the value that religion and cooperate expression has in our lives and its positive impact on resiliency and readiness. I’m asking you to practice safe social distancing. For our high-risk persons and families with small children, it is recommended that you remain at home and continue to worship with your chapel community via their Facebook Live page.
So what does your worship service look like in a social distancing environment? Parishioners wear masks and sit 6-feet apart, families sit together. If you do not have a facemask, you will be asked to worship at home via your congregation’s Facebook Live web page. There is no religious education or watch care provided at this time as assessments of our worship experience and community continue.
I know it is challenging, but there are no extended greetings or fellowship time observed before or after the services. Please be patient and courteous as congregational leaders and religious affairs specialists ensure COVID-19 mitigation cleaning procedures are followed before and after each service.
Of note, the only service that will need to adjust its start time is the Chapel NeXt service. It will begin at 11:15 a.m. instead of 11:00 a.m. This will allow more time for cleaning and set up after the Catholic Mass.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Religious Support Operations office at 254-288-6545.
