Thank you for choosing “Worship with Us” at St. Stephen’s, Oxford, NC.
St. Stephen’s worship currently follows the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina’s “Stage 3 Regathering Guidelines.” We endorse mask-wearing for all indoor worship, meetings, and activities, regardless of immunization status. Masks are required when coming forward to receive Communion and during any service when congregational singing occurs.
Again, thank you for choosing “Worship with Us” at St. Stephen’s. We look forward to a day when we may re-gather under less stringent conditions than the COVID-19 pandemic imposes.
Until then, we pray for those who have been stricken, mourn those who have died, rejoice with those who have recovered, and give thanks for the continued health of those who have escaped affliction. And we pray for all whose health is otherwise adversely affected by non-COVID-19 conditions as well.
May the Lord bless you, keep you, and preserve you to eternal life. Amen.
The Rev. Dr. Vincent Joseph Kopp Rector
St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church Oxford, NC
