We do not know how many people will attend in-church worship at Grace or exactly what forms it will take as it resumes.  We do know that it will need to be different.  Directives from the Diocese of New York, the government, and the priorities of our parishioners will shape these changes.

Below, please indicate how each of the following in-church worship modifications would impact your decision to participate.
