Dear St. John’s,
Being of Irish heritage, I made sure to wear a bit of green on Friday.
I’ve also been celebrating a different sort of green: The COVID tracker for New Jersey shows
Morris County, and indeed all of North Jersey, consistently and solidly in the green. This means
that the infection rate and COVID hospitalization rate both have dropped and are remaining low.
At church, this means that mask wearing now is completely optional. For now, I will continue to
wear a mask while presiding at the altar and distributing Communion as an extra precaution.
Let us give thanks that this public health crisis has finally subsided, and let us pray that New
Jersey’s COVID map keeps wearing the green.
A few notes for Sunday:
