Please note, if it has snowed on Saturday night into Sunday or it’s snowing on Sunday morning, there will be no 8am service. The same is true with ice precipitation. Please join us instead at the 10am service. The Vestry is very concerned with the safety of our parishioners and clergy. Thank you for your understanding.
