Durham's Public Health Protocols

(keyed to CDC's COVID-intensity data page)

Join us over Zoom at 4:30pm on December 1, 8, 15, & 22 for EMERGE, a brief discussion of scripture and a quotation from Rowan Williams.  The texts are meant to stimulate thought about how we are emerging from the pandemic.  The discussion will be followed at 5pm by a brief service of Vespers.

​​Sunday, December 5 at 10:30am, we will worship indoors with masks required for everyone, social distance, and singing.

Old Durham News & Notes

Thank you to all our pledgers!

We warmly welcome you to our "Old Durham" Parish Community.


As public health conditions change, we are holding our Sunday morning worship services in person in church by default. If worship will be held remotely (Zoom) or outdoors, notice will be published here and in the parish eNews.  We worship at 10:30AM.  

 Please do not come to worship if you have reason to believe that you have, or have recently been exposed to, COVID-19 (or anything else that might make the rest of us ill!)

When Charles County is in the yellow ("moderate") range, we will worship indoors with masks optional for fully vaccinated congregants except while singing. We will have at least two windows open and will monitor ventilation.  

When Charles County is in the red ("high") or orange ("substantial") range, we may worship on Zoom or in person.  Indoor worship will be with masks required for everyone, and singing will be determined week by week.  We will have at least two windows open and will monitor ventilation. For outdoor worship when Charles County is in the orange/"substantial" range, masks will be required only for the unvaccinated.  Notice of plans for outdoor worship will be posted here and communicated by email to everyone on the newsletter list.  (Sign up using the blue button at the top of the page.)
