On March 1st the Diocese of Maine will be rolling out an updated version of Safe Church Training. We give thanks for this updated resource that helps us to live more deeply into our Baptislam Vows as the Body of Christ at St. Paul’s, Brunswick.
What it is “Safe Church”? “The purpose of this policy is to help the church to be a safer place for all who worship, or minister, or come in any sort of need, including children, youth, elders, the vulnerable, (everyone in our community), and those who work with them. We believe that this policy is one aspect of honoring our baptismal vows to “respect the dignity of every human being.”” (Episcopal Diocese of Maine)
Who needs to complete it? Clergy, Staff, Vestry, everyone who works with children, and everyone who visits folks beyond our church walls, or anyone else who may be interested!
Why should I complete this training? Completing this training is a path for us to learn ways in which we honor our Baptismal Covenant and to put our faith in action as we commit to the work of keeping one another as safe as possible.
How can I complete training if I don’t want to do it online? We will hold a few in person gatherings for folks to complete the training together! Stay tuned for more information.
Check out this video by clicking here to learn more from the Presiding Bishop and others as to why Safe Church Training is so important.
Beginning March 1st you can find the Diocese of Maine Safe Church Training Information by clicking here.After you have completed your training please print out your certificates and turn them into the Parish office so we can make sure our records are up to date.
If you have any questions please reach out to Rev. Carolyn or Rev. Katie.

St. Paul’s Guidance for Indoor, In-Person Worship and Gatherings
(Guidelines subject to change as pandemic unfolds.)
Based on the most recent CDC instructions,
please follow our guidelines for safer in-person indoor worship:

- Double masking is recommended by the Maine CDC and the Diocese of Maine. Feel free to take one of our masks for double masking
- We will encourage three feet of physical distancing. (Seating will be clearly marked and ushers will help us keep our distance. Please only pass the peace to those near you to limit movement around the Hall and Nave)
- We will say the responses, but no congregational singing. (The choir will sing)
- We will not come forward to receive the bread or wine; communion of one kind from pews.
- We will limit two people or family units in each restroom, masked.
