We Are Open!
Orthros 9:00 am and Divine Liturgy 10:00 am.
WE ARE OPEN! As of Sunday, May 17th, we will be able to allow the faithful to come into church for services by the blessing of Metropolitan Isaiah. It will be similar to before:
1) We still ask that you don’t kiss the icons, the priest or bishop’s hand, the Cross, or the Gospel. Please reverence them by bowing.
2) We can now distribute Holy Communion. If you would like to receive Holy Communion, please ensure that you’re properly prepared.
3) There is hand sanitizer in the narthex by the door for your use. The doors will be propped open to avoid having to touch handles.
4) The elderly and those with compromised immune systems are encouraged to stay home for the time being. This is not a rule or a mandate. If you want to come to church, come to church. If you prefer to stay home, stay home. You are welcome to wear a mask and gloves in church, if you feel more comfortable doing so.
5) We still have to comply with social distancing requirements. Every other pew will be closed. Families ARE allowed to sit together (ie: those living under the same roof or have been distancing together). Separate families and individuals should sit 6 feet apart from each other.
6) We are not allowed to have a choir yet, and coffee hour is still cancelled for the time being. Bible Study will resume after Labor Day.
This is a welcome sign in these uncertain times. The church is here for all of you. Fr. Seraphim is always available to bring you the Holy Mysteries at home.
