We plan to wait until August 16 to make a decision about whether to go forth with the outdoor Holy Eucharist on August 23. Please sign up here by August 15 or call the office by 5pm August 13. if you would like to attend to help inform our decision. We will discuss our decision during our Zoom service on August 16 and in our weekly E-Notes.
Welcome! Here you may sign up for in-person services of Holy Eucharist at St. Bede's.

When you sign up, we are asking that you provide your phone number so that we can contact you if anyone who attends tests positive for COVID-19. Masks are required at all gatherings. Printed bulletins will not be provided, so we ask that you print your own bulletin in advance or download a copy on a digital device. If you are unable to bring your own bulletin, we invite you to come regardless, pray with us, and let the congregation carry you in worship.
We will closely follow safety guidelines for gatherings according to the state of Oregon, which are as follows:
- We allow for a maximum of 50 people to gather for Sunday Holy Eucharist during phase 1.
- We will consider outdoor gatherings when possible.
- We encourage all parties to physically distance by at least 6 feet.
- We encourage people to stay home if they have COVID-19 symptoms and/or if they are at risk for severe illness (over age 65 or have underlying medical conditions).
- We encourage those who attend to practice good hand hygiene with frequent handwashing for at least 20 seconds or to use hand sanitizer (60-95% alcohol content).
- We encourage those who attend to cover coughs/sneezes with elbow or tissue. If a guest uses a tissue, they should immediately throw the tissue away in the garbage and wash their hands.
- We encourage those who attend to avoid touching their face.
- We require those who attend to use masks, face shields or face coverings.
For those who wish to continue joining us online or over the phone, we will continue to offer a 10am service of Ante-Communion on Zoom.
Due to the uncertain nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, changes in service offerings are possible. Please monitor your E-Notes for updates. We will be sure to update you as soon as we learn anything new.
