On Wednesday, Governor Walz ordered that all residents of Minnesota are now required to wear face masks in all public places effective this Saturday. St John will follow this mandate for all church services and meetings. For any other activities where there is only 1 person performing work, it will not be required. Based on the language of the Order, it appears that members could still receive communion by temporarily removing their masks to receive communion and then putting their masks back on.
We will continue our other Covid-19 prevention procedures and masks are available to our members and guests.
