From Bishop Owensby - July 21, 2020

Return to Phase 2 Guidelines
per Governor Edwards

An Important Message from Bishop Owensby

Dear Friends,

Per the Governor’s proclamation today, I am once again allowing indoor, in-person worship under the previously published diocesan guidelines. By doing so I recognize that this departs from CDC guidelines restricting public gatherings at our infection rate level to no more than 10. However, we will still cap attendance as was previously the case and maintain all previously published requirements for social distancing, mask-wearing, and sanitation. If priests, in consultation with lay leadership, are more comfortable restricting worship to outdoors or virtual, they have my permission.

Stay safe. Be well. Remember that you are loved.


More information to follow regarding return to in-person worship at St. Alban's, St. Patrick's, St. Luke's, St. Thomas', and Iglesia Episcopal La Esperanza de Familias Unidas.
