Beginning 29 November the Diocese of Central New York has made the same difficult decision –no indoor services. Online services will continue and can be found in one church or another on a daily basis.

I’m surprised to be asked the question: the three bishops in Michigan got together in March: in person worship has been prohibited since then, for the most part, unless 1) outdoors or 2) very restricted indoor . . . . most parishes are conducting Zoom worship or streaming services.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
