After nearly a year of consideration and conversations between the Rector, Parish Administrator, and Senior Warden, Mondays will be a “quiet work day” for staff to provide a day of uninterrupted time to focus and work efficiently and effectively on catching up on projects, planning, record keeping, etc.
Many church offices have had success with similar plans. Mondays seem to be the optimal day for this at Grace Church, because Mondays tend to be less busy than any other weekday and most national and banking holidays fall on Monday.
Quiet Mondays will begin May 5. Normal parish office hours will be Tuesday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. On Mondays, staff will be in and working, as per their respective work schedules. Telephone calls will be answered and routed to individual staff extensions by our phone system. Emails and phone messages might not be returned until the following day. The front door into the nave will remain unlocked when staff are present in the upstairs offices, but will be locked for security reasons if no one is upstairs. We ask that you please plan meetings/visits accordingly as much as you are able.
