A Message from the Rector

Here is a portion of an email sent late on March 13 to our community.

At Holy Spirit Verona, we will follow the directive of Bishop Hughes and "fast from public worship" this Sunday, March 15 and the following two Sundays.  Everyone is invited to attend an 8am or 10am service via a Zoom (online video) Conference (see below).  For those without access to a computer or camera, a phone number is provided from which a person could listen to the service.  We hope that you will consider joining us virtually.  

Our Seminarian Katherine Rollo is preaching this week, and it would be great if we could still be joined as a family in prayer, even if we are in different locations.

Each Sunday, the people scheduled to be Lectors or Worship Assistants are invited to attend the private worships, both of which will take place in the Chapel.  This week will be a test run for us and we'll adjust as necessary.  As a community we should continue to pray for one another, call one another and stay connected just as we might any other Sunday.  Please do what is necessary to take care of yourself and those dear to you.  We are never alone.  To quote Bishop Hughes' email, God is with us.
 
For the virtual services (the Saturday test or the Lenten Book Group), click on the appropriate link listed below.  Any computer or smartphone is needed to join as a video and audio participant, or you may use a telephone for audio only.  I am also hosting a 10am Saturday, March 14 test run with Zoom if you want to see how it works ahead of Sunday.

I hope to “see you” virtually on Sunday for worship.  Anyone with the above links or phone numbers can join our worship, so "invite a friend" too.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
 
With prayers and virtual hugs,
Father Jerry
