An Important Update from Francisco Burgos, Pendle Hill’s Executive Director

09/14/21

Dear Pendle Hill Friends,

As those of you who have been in community with Pendle Hill recently know, in mid-June we took the joyful and careful step of re-opening our campus to welcome small groups and sojourners for the first time in over a year! We were grateful to be able to offer services to guests once again, due to the decrease in COVID-19 cases, the increase in vaccination rates, and our internal capacity to safely serve our guests. It also would not have been possible without deeply considered safety protocols and practices developed by our staff over many months to assist in creating a safe and welcoming campus.

As the Delta variant of COVID-19 surges across the nation, Pendle Hill needs to continue honing our protocols and practices in collaboration with our Friends and the many organizations that visit our campus for renewal, learning, and community. As Executive Director, I have also been holding this need in my daily listening for Spirit in meeting for worship. I feel deeply the importance of keeping Pendle Hill a place where everyone is welcome, and where every person can feel safe, nurtured, and supported.

Towards this end, starting September 24th, every guest at Pendle Hill will be required to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or proof of negative results from a PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival on campus. To learn more about how we are accepting proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test result and what exactly we mean by each of these, please see our FAQ.
