The question that’s on everyone’s mind.  Before we can consider worshiping again in St. Francis’ there are four criteria that must be met:

In order for in-person worship to occur, the following Four Criteria need to be met:

  1. The number of COVID-19 cases has to have decreased in your county for 14 days.
  2. Your county retains the ability to test all Hoosiers who are COVID-19 symptomatic.
  3. Health officials in your county have systems in place to contact all individuals who test positive for COVID-19 and complete contact tracing.
  4. A plan to safely re-gather for in-person worship has been developed and received approval from the Bishop.


  1. This is a hard target to meet, the numbers fluctuate quite a bit.  The graphic below shows this, the block is for two weeks.
  2. This appears to be met.
  3. The last report we had was that they expect to meet this requirement this month.
  4. This is currently is being worked on by our Leadership Committee.
