How do I register for the next in-person service?
Click here to register online or call 713-621-3040 to save a seat by phone. Registration opens at 9 a.m. on Monday and closes at noon on Friday for the following Sunday’s services.
I registered, but my plans changed and I cannot attend. What should I do?
If your plans change, you can cancel your reservation by clicking the cancel button on your confirmation email. This will open a seat for another Parishioner.
Will I have reserved seats?
Yes! In order to maximize the number of people that can attend each service and to abide by the Diocesan and CDC six-feet, social-distancing requirements, we will assign seats and pews will be labeled accordingly. To sit with family or friends, please make one reservation for the group, rather than separate reservations for individuals. Separate reservations will be socially-distanced.
Will valet parking be available?
While we will not have valet parking at this time, family members may drop others off under the porte cochères.
May I attend the in-person services every Sunday?
For now, we ask you to be generous by giving others the chance to worship in person once you have enjoyed that same opportunity. Please wait a few weeks before registering again.
Are services available online?
Yes, we will continue to live stream our service on YouTube and Facebook.
Will I be able to use the Bibles and/or Books of Common Prayer that are in the pew racks?
No. We have removed all materials including hymnals and Books of Common Prayer for your safety. All of the service information will be in the bulletin. You are also welcome to bring a personal copy from home.
Will we use Worship Bulletins?
Yes. There will be fresh, untouched bulletins. After the service, please take yours home or drop it in the wood boxes for recycling. We will not reuse them.
What time should I arrive for the service?
Doors to The Church will open 30 minutes before the service starts. You must be in your seats five minutes before the service start time. We recommend you come when the doors open because with our new procedure of having helpers seat you, it may take longer than usual to get everyone situated.
What if I am late to the service?
Doors to The Church will close five minutes before the service starts. We will continue to live stream our service and that requires that we keep to an exact schedule. We appreciate your understanding and assistance in keeping things on schedule.
Now that we have reopened for worship, has St. Martin’s campus also reopened?
Not at this time. Essential staff continue to work on campus as needed, but campus remains closed.
Will the service include Holy Eucharist?
The service on Sept.13 will include the Holy Eucharist, using the Host only, a complete communion in the Episcopal Church.
