We’re open at 50% capacity; Sadly, no singing is allowed

Governor Larry Hogan has implemented the beginning of the end of the “lockdown” in Maryland. This allows us to “re-open: at 50 percent of capacity, but, while music is permitted, we are not allowed to sing

Experts at the Centers for Disease Control believe that singing expels more air from our lungs than talking, and that it greatly increases the risk of spreading the Covid-19 virus. Our Sunday service schedule will thus resume at 8:00 AM, 9:15 AM and 11:00 AM subject to “social distancing” requirements.

We will celebrate the Eucharist at all three Sunday services until things return to some degree of normality. This will enable parishioners who usually attend the 9:15 AM Eucharist to consider occasionally worshipping at 8:00 AM or 11:00 AM services.

In view of restrictions on school attendance, Sunday School will be temporarily suspended.

For shut-ins and folks still in quarantine we will be continuing our video recordings of Feast Day and Sunday Eucharists. These are posted on the parish website (, Youtube, and Isaac the Eagle’s Facebook page.

You’ll find them from 9:00 AM onwards every Sunday and Day of Obligation at at the bottom of the Home Page, under “Recent Blog Posts. A new midweek “broadcast” talk by the rector can also be found on the website every Wednesday or Thursday.

Meanwhile, please remember that in a bid to prevent the theft of checks mailed to the church, we have opened a Post Office Box for the exclusive use of the treasurer. Please mail your offerings to: St Stephen’s Anglican Church, P.O. Box 6161, Timonium, MD 21094. All other mail should be sent to our street address. GPH✠ & JPN✠
