St. Thomas’ celebrates one Holy Eucharist service in the church on Sunday mornings at 10:00.
If you are not feeling well or experiencing a fever or cold symptoms, we hope you will join us for this service virtually via our livestream. You can find us on YouTube on our channel at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church of Rochester, New York
St. Thomas’ offers the common cup during services. As we take this step forward and learn to live with variants of COVID, we need to be clear about several points:
Communion in one kind (bread only) is full communion. You are free to abstain from the cup.
If you are participating in the common cup, please plan to drink from the cup. Studies show that intinction i.e. dipping, has more potential to spread contagions. The fingers carry far more germs than mouths.
Eucharistic Ministers are trained in the best way possible to clean the chalice between persons.
