Dear friends,

Developments continue apace.

Bishop Klusmeyer has just sent instruction that all services of public worship are to be canceled until further notice. This extraordinary step underscores, if nothing else could, the high seriousness with which this pandemic is being treated.

With sadness, I announce to you that St. John's Church is hereby closed to all public gatherings, effective immediately. Under its own emergency plan, Manna Meal will continue to be able to provide food for the hungry, but taking extreme care for the safety of staff and guests.

I will inform you as soon as I can about ways you may observe private worship.

May God bless and keep you all,
Donald Vinson
Interim Rector
