At this time, all of our liturgies and programming have options for online participation. Sunday mass and Tuesday Centering prayer are offered in a hybrid online and in-person format. We ask for patience as we work on the technical aspects. As we regather for hybrid liturgies, things may look a bit different. Aware that things may change, and out of a dedication to protecting the most vulnerable among our community, our current recommendations include:
Masks required for everyone over the age of two.
No distancing required
singing & communal recitation allowed (yes, we will have our choir)
Communion will be bread only for the time being, and will be placed in your hand by our Eucharistic Ministers.
Instead of passing a basket for the offering, baskets will be placed at the entrances to the chapel for the offering. If you have been making your donations online or by mail, you may continue to do so.
We will not police vaccination status, but we encourage all who are able to get vaccinated.
You may notice that our worship leaders (priests, lectors, & cantors) remove their face masks when at the microphones for increased audio clarity. All of these individuals are fully vaccinated.
Please know that whether you join us online or in-person, you are an integral part of our community.
If you feel sick or have any symptons of Covid-19 (fever/chills, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle/body aches, headache, loss of taste/smell, sore throat, congestion/runny nose, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, etc) we encourage you to stay home and join us online instead. (And to get tested for covid-19 before rejoining us.)
are continually monitoring updates from the county and public health
officials and will change our guidelines if necessary.
We invite you to join us on Zoom for our liturgies. (Sunday Mass & Feast Day Liturgies are streamed to our facebook page, providing technology cooperates.) You may find it useful to download and install zoom in advance of liturgy - which can be done on a smart phone, tablet, or computer. A video tutorial on how to use zoom can be found here and this document contains some helpful tips. Please reach out if you have questions or need assistance. We'd be happy to help.
For those participating from home, we invite you to create sacred space in your homes as you join us - some have found it useful to have bread and wine (or similar) at home to share in our communion meal and to have a candle lit. Worship aids for Sundays and major feast days will be uploaded a few hours before the service on the day of the liturgy.

- Compline Prayer, every Monday at 7pm PST - Zoom Link
Compline is the "completion" of the day and it is spent with our God. The Compline we offer on Monday evenings is about 20 minutes of winding down, hearing images that might comfort and connect us with the Divine as we begin to prepare for bed. Please join us as you can for this lovely way to begin our rest for the night.

Centering Prayer is offered in a hybrid format - in-person at GLC and on zoom. You are welcome to join us in either format.
