Update 11/23/2021: Given the newly announced phased approach to limit the risk of transmission and infection in Erie County, the leadership of Holy Trinity is re-evaluating our current COVID protocols. This will continue to be an ongoing process. While the new mask mandate will not affect Sunday morning worship, it will affect how groups, committees, etc. meet and use the space at Holy Trinity. As with the mask mandate, effective November 23, all individuals, groups, committees entering the church will be required to wear a mask over their nose and mouth; who are age 2 or older and medically able to tolerate a mask. The council will continue to evaluate our protocols as new information is shared from the Erie County Department of Health.
