Cathedral Health and Safety Protocols for In-Person Worship

We are glad to welcome you to St. James Cathedral. We are following the Center for Disease Control and City of Chicago guidelines for Phase 5 of the COVID-19 pandemic, and so: 

  • For those who are fully vaccinated, wearing masks and social distancing is optional, including while singing. For those who are not fully vaccinated, wearing masks and social distancing is required. 
  • The side pews are set aside for those who wish to continue to be masked and socially distanced in worship. 
  • While we will resume offering the Peace physically, this is not an obligation. It is still acceptable to pass the Peace by a gesture if you do not feel comfortable with physical interaction at this point. 
  • For the time being, Communion will continue to be served in one kind (the bread) at standing stations instead of the altar rail.
