Reopening our doors

Reopening our doors

Reopening our doors

It won’t surprise you to hear that we don’t yet have an exact date for our reopening. As directed by the Bishop, we’ll be undertaking a phased approach to reopening, that follows Governor Jay Inslee’s guide for businesses and churches in our state.

Click here for the Bishop’s guidelines for the reopening of churches in our Diocese. Watch this video for the Bishop’s most recent update.

Although there is still much to be determined, we know for sure that planning our reopening will involve a lot of people and activity! There will be four opportunities to gather for virtual town hall style meetings to talk about the plans being made and to get some feedback from each of you on how you’re feeling about returning to in-person worship.

Please look at your calendar and save the date for the one that works the best for you. Details and zoom links will be posted in Realm. If you have any challenges finding the links, contact the parish office.
