GOOD Morning Wilton will do our best to keep a running list of events that are cancelled, postponed or still ongoing. If you have any to report email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Acoustic Wilton–POSTPONED Organizers say they are looking for an alternative date and will communicate soon.
Our Lady of Fatima Church–Activities are still ongoing, with adjustments: the Diocese has asked pastors to suspend offering wine at masses; parishioners will be encouraged to use gestures other than shaking hands, holding hands, etc. at various points in the service. Parishes will replace Holy Water “more frequently,” make sure that handrails, restrooms and pews are properly disinfected, and offer hand sanitizer at church entrances. Parishioners are reminded that if they are exhibiting flu-like symptoms, they are not obliged to attend Sunday Mass. They are also reminded “to pray for an end to this illness and to keep all those who have died from and who are adversely affected by the Coronavirus in [their] prayers.”
Wilton Presbyterian Church–Activities ongoing, with adjustments: Rev. Shannon White said Sunday service are on at 10 a.m. with Communion using individually wrapped wafers and juice cups. Hand sanitizer dispensers have been installed outside the sanctuary and people are urged to use it before coming to coffee hour. “I am not shaking hands at the door. Coffee hour will go on with the advice that people stay a few feet apart. We will have Bible study as scheduled with allow people to spread out. Youth group will go on at this point but in a larger room, so people can spread out,” White said, adding, “We are using precautions but urging people not to panic.”
