St. Francis in the Keys
|Posted on June 1, 2021 at 3:50 PM|
Starting on June 6th and going through October, St. Francis in the Keys Episcopal Church and Lord of the Seas Lutheran Church will once again hold joint services at 10 am each Sunday after a year when they couldn't. And the public is invited to come.
The two congregations will meet together at St. Francis in the Keys on the first and third Sundays of the month. They will come together at Lord of the Seas on the second and fourth Sundays of each month. Though their worship services are very similar, each parish will experience the unique and delightful contributions their sister denomination has made to Christian tradition. St. Francis will share their Celtic service and their healing service. Each church will uphold their denomination's safety protocols when meeting in their sanctuary. Masks are mandatory at present at St. Francis. Social distancing is observed at both. The passing of the peace is by waving or making the peace sign or by bowing, not by physical contact. Both congregations are celebrating communion.
The sites of the two churches are only a quarter of a mile apart. Lord of the Seas is located at 1250 Key Deer Blvd, a mile and a quarter from the only stoplight on Big Pine Key. St. Francis in the Keys is at 1600 Key Deer Blvd, just south of Watson Blvd.
