Updated In-Person Worship Practices at Pilgrim

Updated: Jun 3


As Pilgrim enters into a new season of gathering together, all are invited to review our safety practices some new, and some existing for our summer worship services.

Indoor Worship:

  • We will gather indoors on June 13 & 20.

  • For the safety of the Pilgrim community, masks are required when you are in the building. Caring for our neighbors is a core tenet of the Pilgrim community, and this is one way to keep everyone safe. Disposable masks will be available should you need one.

  • Social distancing requirements have been loosened and max capacities have been increased under the guidance of local health officials and the Pilgrim SMART Team.

  • For contact tracing purposes, everyone attending worship in person will be asked to sign in. You may sign up in advance for indoor worship at the links below, or sign in with an usher at the beginning of worship.

  • Sign up for June 13 morning indoor worship

  • Sign up for June 13 evening indoor worship

  • Sign up for June 20 morning indoor worship

  • Indoor services will be broadcast on Facebook live. A tutorial for accessing worship on Facebook Live is available here.

  • Please bring your own wine/juice and bread/crackers on Sundays when we will be celebrating communion. The next indoor worship service with communion is Sunday, June 20. Individually wrapped single-serve communion elements will be available for those who choose to use them.


Outdoor Worship:

  • We will gather outdoors on June 6 & 27.

  • Out of abundant concern for one another, we request that worshippers wear a mask at outdoor worship services. This will help us be welcoming to all who may be just returning to public gatherings. Disposable masks will be available should you need one.

  • Social distancing requirements have been loosened and max capacities have been increased under the guidance of local health officials and the Pilgrim SMART Team.

  • For contact tracing purposes, everyone attending worship in person will be asked to sign in with an usher at the beginning of worship.

  • Outdoor services will not be broadcast online due to limited connectivity.

  • Please bring your own wine/juice and bread/crackers on Sundays when we will be celebrating communion. The next outdoor worship service with communion is Sunday, June 6. Individually wrapped single-serve communion elements will be available for those who choose to use them.


Children & Families

  • The east and west transept areas will be available for all who choose to use them. Please stay with your child when using these areas. Coloring sheets, clipboards, and markers will be available as well. Please return used clipboards and markers to the labeled bins in the transepts after you are done using them. These items will be cleaned after each use.

  • In order to keep the youngest Pilgrims (who don't yet have access to COVID vaccines) safe, the nursery will not be open during worship. As always, children are welcome in worship, and you are free to move throughout the sanctuary with your child as needed.


After Worship

  • In-person coffee time will be outside and begin immediately after worship on the west lawn. Please bring your own beverages and snacks.

  • Virtual coffee time on Zoom will begin at 11:00 am. You can join virtual coffee time here. This link will remain the same every Sunday, and you are invited to bookmark it in your browser for easier access.

  • On June 20, Pilgrim will host a forum on Zoom, titled "Highlights of Pilgrim's Vital Signs Report," in conjunction with Zoom coffee time. The forum will begin shortly after coffee time starts on the same Zoom link. Join the forum here.


Your attention to these guidelines is greatly appreciated! If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to the Pilgrim office at pilgrim@pilgrimstpaul.org or 651-699-6886.
