A P.O. Box for the treasurer and plans for a “reopening”

In an effort to prevent the theft of checks mailed to the church, we have opened a Post Office Box for the exclusive use of the treasurer. In future, please mail your offerings to: The Treasurer, St Stephen’s Anglican Church, P.O. Box 6161, Timonium, MD 21094. All other mail should be sent to the parish at our street address.

Meanwhile, we have been making plans in hopes that Governor Larry Hogan will shortly permit the state to begin returning to normal, although when we are allowed to open it is likely that some restrictions will still be in place.

It is, for example, expected that we will have to monitor the numbers attending our various services, especially in light of the fact that non-family members are likely to be required to maintain “social distancing.”

This might present problems at our 9:15 AM Eucharist which, with children, normally well exceeds 50 people in the nave. Furthermore, until the governor’s rules are completely lifted, running the Sunday School might also present difficulties as children generally like to be in close contact with one another .

Because of these constraints, we believe it best to celebrate the Eucharist at all three Sunday services until we are able to resume our normal worship schedule. This will enable parishioners who usually attend the 9:15 AM Eucharist to consider occasionally worshipping at the 8:00 AM or 11:00 AM services.

We will also continue for the foreseeable future the video recordings of Feast Day and Sunday Eucharists. These are posted on the parish website (blog.ststeve.com), Youtube, and Isaac the Eagle’s Facebook page by 9:00 AM every Sunday. You’ll find them at ststeve.com at the bottom of the Home Page, under “Recent Blog Posts.”

The first midweek broadcast talk by the rector took place on Wednesday, April 29th. They can be found on the website and will be continued every Wednesday for the foreseeable future.

God bless you all, GPH✠ & JPN✠
