Worship Mar22 bulletin

We are suspending all activities at the church building until further notice.

We made the decision to suspend all activities at the church building until further notice.
We sincerely hope that we are over-reacting. Our priority is to do our part to avoid the spread of the virus. 
We may not be able to physically gather, but this will not prevent us from being Church to one another and to our community!
Our CARE Team is coordinating efforts to stay connected to those in need.  You can volunteer to help by leaving a message on the Church phone 905-898-1682 – if you require assistance leave a message and someone will get back to you ASAP or call Pastor Dawn on her cellphone 905-868-0897
Plans are being made to live-stream worship on Sundays and to provide other opportunities for us to gather online.

Public Health Protocols @ Holy Cross

As anxiety about the COVID-19 virus increases, it is only natural for us to wonder what the implications for our community might be. While the risk here in York Region remains low, it is prudent for us to take some basic hygiene precautions  to ensure that we are doing our best to limit the spread of the virus. At yesterday’s Council Meeting, a series of Public Health Protocols were authorized for use by our volunteers, members and visitors. You can read or download a copy here

At this stage, we are taking a practical proactive approach, while remaining hopeful that the low risk of contracting the virus will make these efforts little more than a temporary inconvenience.
We continue to hold all those who are affected by the virus in our hearts and thereby our prayers.  Trusting that together we can empower one another to be LOVE in the world.
Today, our National Bishop Susan Johnson, together with all of our Synodical Bishops issued a pastoral letter concerning coronavirus (COVID-19) and communities of the ELCIC. here
