St. Cuthbert Church is worshipping every Sunday at 10:00 both in-person and online. The sacrament of Holy Communion has resumed for those worshipping in person. The Spiritual Communion Prayer will remain a part of the service for those worshipping online. If you are in a high-risk population or are just not comfortable returning to in-person worship right now, that’s ok! If you are not feeling well, please stay home.
St. Cuthbert will continue to live stream the worship service on our Facebook page. The service may also be viewed on our YouTube channel.
During this season of COVID, we have managed to pivot as the situation changes, and that will continue. Right now, we are starting with what the Vestry and Staff believe we are able to do safely and well with a plan approved by Bishop Fisher of the Diocese of Texas.
Here are some things to expect:
- In order to maintain social distancing, Sanctuary seating will be limited and pre-registration will be necessary. You may pre-register here in the Featured Events section on the Wednesday prior to that Sunday. If you don't have internet access, you may call the church office and leave a message to be added to the pre-registration list beginning Wednesday. The deadline to register by phone is Friday at 5:00.
