The Rev. Alex Dyer will hold Sunday worship on Facebook for the church he serves according to The New Haven Register:
The congregation at the Episcopal Church of St. Paul and St. James may be scattered on Sunday, but they’ll still be able to worship together.
Services have been canceled, but the Rev. Alex Dyer, priest-in-charge, will hold “virtual church” on the parish’s Facebook page.
“It’s always a tough decision to cancel church,” but with a travel ban still in effect, “We want to get the word out early and we want people to stay safe.” Dyer said the decision was made after consulting with lay leadership.
“Instead we’re going to do church via Facebook,” Dyer said. “Social media is a great tool and doesn’t replace church by any stretch of the imagination, but in times like these it’s great to have a community that can reach out and connect.”
