Masks are optional during our worship services and meetings inside the church for those who are up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations (including booster shots when eligible). Please respect the fact that some Palmers will continue wearing masks even when not required to do so. Individuals who are unvaccinated must continue to wear a mask indoors at all times throughout our campus.

Holy Communion

Access to the chalice during the administration of Holy Communion is now fully restored. In other words, you may sip the consecrated wine from the chalice if you choose to do so.


We strongly encourage our members and guests attending Palmer events, including those making informal visits to our facilities, to be up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations (including boosters shots when eligible).

If you are unvaccinated, for your own personal safety and for the safety of others, you should consider attending meetings, events, or worship services online.

Archway Academy, Palmer Drug Abuse Program, the German International School of Houston, and the Episcopal Church at Rice

These four programs which meet on our campus will continue to follow their own guidelines in the spaces that they use within our facilities.
