Protocols for Walk-Through Eucharist, June 6 at St. Paul's
On June 6, from 11:30-12:30pm, we'll be hosting our first "Walk-Through" Eucharist in St. Paul's sanctuary. Here's what to expect:
This experience is for those who are healthy and have not had any recent exposure to COVID-19. Everyone must wear a mask at all times when on St. Paul’s campus. Please follow the signs, sanitize your hands, and keep a distance of at least 6 feet from everyone outside of your household. We’ll have printed instructions ready for you.
If you are not feeling well for any reason, please remain at home, even if you are fully vaccinated, for everyone's safety.
What To Expect
Stop by our sanctuary anytime between 11:30am and 12:30pm to receive the bread made holy—a wafer consecrated for you. We'll also offer you a personal blessing.
Put on your mask, sanitize your hands, keep your distance and watch for the signs leading you through this carefully distanced Eucharist experience. Make your way through the path of distanced blue circles up into the church and then follow the distancing markers. Be careful to stay at least 6 feet from anyone not from your household.
As you wait your turn, please recite the Lord’s Prayer. (If you don’t have time before you make it to the front, please recite it when you are returning to your car after this walk-through Eucharist or at another convenient time soon after you receive.)
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed by thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.
When you come to the final marker closest to the table, the clergy will greet you. Please keep your distance and do not approach until we invite you forward. Thank you!
Please wait for the priest to prepare communion for you. When it’s ready, the priest will step back then invite you to come forward to receive. Carefully lift your mask just enough to place the host in your mouth. Move mask back over mouth and nose, toss cup into trash can and return to your marker.
Please depart to your left through the side door to Loma Vista without passing those still in line. Walk around campus and return to your car keeping your mask on and carefully keeping your distance from others. Thank you so much for your cooperation!
