🔴Important Information🔴

Regarding the COVID-19 CoronaVirus:

As you may know, many public gatherings have been restricted as a result of the concerns over the spread of the coronovirus.

Our church leaders have been prayerfully considering how to respond.

We will NOT be serving Vespers tonight and Liturgy is restricted in attendance.   I quote from the memo attached:

“Only the Sunday Divine Liturgy, the Vesperal Liturgy of the Feast of Annunciation, and the Presanctified Liturgies, will remain on our parish calendars through March 29. This implies, clearly, that no other gathering or service of any sort will take place on the parish property.”

When we do hold services, they are limited in attendance to the priest, reader, altar servers, and a small choir.  We will have a greeter present to inform visitors “Our Archbishop has asked that we pray in our homes until at least March 29, but we are serving liturgies with just a few people.”

We will keep you updated as these guidelines change or are lifted.

We  join Father Paul and the rest of our church leadership in praying for the health and safety of all of our mission, faithful, community, country, and world.
