Community of St. Bridget 2021 Liturgical Schedule
At long last, we have seen the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel and are making headway for in-person liturgies! We will be starting cautiously, given the Delta variant is out there and many people have not been vaccinated. All people who attend our in-person liturgies will be asked to follow the recent guidelines of the CDC in wearing facial masks.
For your health and safety, we will be distributing Communion differently. The bread will be pre-broken and placed on a dish. The wine will be offered in individual serving cups. Communion ministers will wear gloves when offering the bread. The serving cups of wine will be offered and the cup will be returned for reuse afterward.
All scheduled liturgies will have a social hour after the service (except for December 18th).
In-person liturgies are held at Brecksville United Church of Christ, 23 Public Square, Brecksville, OH 44141. Parking is available behind the building that is accessed via Arlington Ave. off of Brecksville Rd., first block south of Rte. 82.

Saturday, August 28, 2021 at 1:00 pm., in the Main Sanctuary.

Throughout the COVID pandemic, the Community of St. Bridget has offered a Zoom liturgy online each Sunday at 12 Noon, Eastern Time. This offering has developed into a new ministry for our community. We will continue to offer this venue each Sunday for all those who wish to participate, continuing the spirit of sacred sharing and growing in faith with people far and near. If you wish to participate in our Zoom liturgies, please contact Mary Eileen at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be sent the invitation link.
There will be no zoom liturgy on Sunday, August 29, 2021, as there will be no tech assistants or presiders available that day due to the continued ordination celebrations that weekend. All zoom liturgies will resume again in September.
