Update from the Reopening Committee – 8/14
In June, the Episcopal Diocese of Texas changed its policy to allow each parish the discretion to decide when to resume in-person worship and programming. (Previously, the Diocese took a more active role in determining when parishes could gather in person.) In response to this change, the Good Shepherd vestry formed a small group to advise it on the timing of re-gathering. This Reopening Committee meets weekly to consider when conditions would allow for a safe return to in-person worship.
The committee is continuing to monitor conditions so that the parish will be ready to reopen when it can safely do so.
Please keep the reopening committee in your prayers. Members of the committee are Ben Hanson, Taylor Bowles, Erin Stephens, Mark Stewart, Janie Walker and Boots Willeford.
