OUR CHURCH SERVICES IN THE TIME OF COVID-19
While the church is open for services according to the published schedule, we continue to follow directives to wear masks and maintain social-distancing. When we pray before icons , we should only bow, but not kiss them. There will be no kissing of the cross at the end of Liturgy, but veneration of the icon on the Tetrapod. Those receiving Holy Communion will follow the directions by Fr. Emil. The Antidoron will be in individual cups. We are making every effort to sanitize contact areas before and after services, but you should still use hand sanitizer at the candle counter as you leave. Parishioners who do not feel well, or are not ready to come out should continue to pray at home.
