Mother Lily’s Message
It has been a busy time here at St. Gregory’s with Holy Week, Easter, and a funeral.
Since the busiest time is now past, it is time for us to work on an Emergency Preparedness Plan for our church. The plan will have many components and deal with various types of emergencies which could happen. Once completed, it will be available for the congregation to peruse. Our desire to have a plan is not meant to create or elevate anxiety. It is an opportunity to be prepared, just in case. It never hurts to be prepared. Being prepared should alleviate anxiety rather than increase it. We live in an insecure time, in our country and in our world. So, this is timely and needed. If you have any suggestions as we move forward on this feel free to share those with me.
As we prioritized tasks and compiled a wish list at our Vestry Retreat this past weekend it was felt, strongly, that an Emergency Preparedness Plan needed to be at the top of the list of tasks to complete. Feeling safe and protected as we gather and as we worship is essential.
Easter Blessings to you and yours,
Mother Lily +
