Guidelines for In-Person Worship at St. Paul Lutheran Church, Gloucester MA 

  • Effective Sunday, July 4th, the wearing of masks will be optional in the church building and on the grounds, though individuals are welcome to wear them if you choose.
  • If you don’t feel well, have experienced any COVID-19 symptoms, or have been exposed to anyone with COVID-19, please do not attend worship in person.  We will continue to live stream and post worship services online throughout the summer.    
  • Please refrain from touching other worshipers during the sharing of the peace (except those in your own family or group). Nodding or bowing is a friendly way to greet another person in these circumstances. 
  • Consecrated bread/wafers, wine, and grape juice will be distributed by the pastor as it was before; having parishioners come forward as directed by an usher. All traffic is to be circular, going left or right once you receive communion, moving to the back of the church using the side aisles to return to your seat. 

We hope to see you on Sunday.
