Dear Emmanuel parishioners,

After guidance from the Diocese, and given the current positivity rate in Franklin and Southampton County, we will be suspending in person worship for the next several weeks. If you will recall, we encountered very much the same thing in August & September. My hope is that this suspension will be no longer than it was then.

God’s peace, love, and blessings to you and yours now and always,
