Dear Chalice Members and Friends,
The Board and I met last night to assess our plans regarding reopening Chalice. We promised you an update at the end of the year. In light of the current surge of Covid19 and our local hospitals reaching capacity, we will not be reopening our buildings for in-person gatherings until sometime next year. When Covid is under control, with the vaccine widely available and there are medical treatments and advances in contact tracing and testing, we will reevaluate. As you know, the UUA recommends definitive closure and online gathering through May 2021. Our Board is continuously monitoring the situation both locally and nationally and will reconsider plans based on current circumstances in March 2021.
Meanwhile, we continue to offer vibrant and sustaining online worship services and groups for adults and youth to meet your spiritual, emotional and justice needs. Please join us at some of our activities, so you may nurture your spirit, heart and mind and stay connected to your Chalice friends. You can find out more about what activities are available on our website at this link: Chalice Activities
Please also join us for our special Christmas Eve service on Thursday, December 24 at 5 pm, as well as our many other holiday events. Meanwhile, should you have pastoral care needs or are financially stressed, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or our Pastoral Care Team. We are here for you.
Sending faith, love and a good dose of holiday spirit,
Minister, Chalice UU Fellowship and The Chalice Board of Trustees
