Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our bishop closed all churches in the Diocese of Southern Virginia in mid-March of 2020. From mid-July through early December we were allowed to open with restrictions. During Advent we were closed again until March 14, 2021. We thank our Music Director, Danny Corneliussen, for his weekly Sunday feedings of our souls with his beautiful music and thoughtful reflections during this difficult period of time. From now on each week of the church year we shall continue to feature one of Danny’s Music Messages created during the year of the pandemic. (The process of organizing and editing his messages is almost complete.)
