Saint Luke’s Roadmap Sunday Worship and Weekdays

With indicators and public measurements continuing to improve with more Covid-19 vaccines widely available for those over 16 years of age and with recommendations from Bishop Curry, Saint Luke’s will look to move forward with the below recommended phases for Sunday worship and weekday offerings. We strongly encourage at risk individuals to continue to worship where they feel most comfortable at Saint Luke’s.

We will continue to closely monitor Covid cases and hospitalizations in the Birmingham area.   Should there be an increase such that there is an increasing health risk, we may have to alter or rescind these policies.  We certainly hope that will not be the case, but the health of our members remains a top priority.  We will also be monitoring the number of vaccinations.  Should all indications point toward a lessening of risk, we will also adjust our policies accordingly.   Thanks to all of you for your continuing patience and compliance.
