In-Person Worship Opportunities during the Pandemic
St. Mark offers currently both in-person and online/virtual services as described below:
Sunday Morning Worship
In-person services of Holy Communion in the church are held at 9:00AM every Sunday morning. Our Sunday service lasts about 70 minutes.
All in-person worship attendees should expect the following:
- With the continued presence of COVID-19 and the indoor mask mandate instituted by the state of Illinois, the wearing of cloth face coverings/masks over both mouth and nose during worship is required at this time. This requirement applies to all attendees over age 2 regardless of vaccination status.
- Communion is served using bread wafers and individual cups of wine around the altar rail
- Hand sanitizer is available and its use is encouraged by attendees.
- Post-worship coffee hour in the parish hall. Again, mask-wearing is required when not actively eating or drinking.
- Of course, please stay home if you do not feel well. COVID-19 shares symptoms with many ailments with which we are commonly afflicted.
IMPORTANT: These preventative measures are in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19, but none of them guarantee that you or your family members will not become infected. Please use your best judgment on whether or not to attend in-person worship.
