March 28, 2020 Message from Archpriest Stefan Pavlenko, Rector:
Saturday Vigil at 4:00 pm. Those wishing to have Confession and Communion should watch the services on our Livestream. Sunday morning Divine Liturgy at 8:00 am. Services will take place behind locked doors.
At the end of the Liturgy the Confession prayers and the Communion prayers will be read for all who plan to receive Holy Eucharist. If you are planning to be a communicant, you must listen to these prayers.
At the end of the Liturgy and Confession and Communion Prayers, be parked on the street around the church and check in with Andrei Roudenko and/or Alexei Kovalenko. You will then be contacted when to enter the Church in groups of 4 to 6. The prayer usually read immediately before Communion will then be read. Each person will receive a Holy Particle of the Holy Body and Blood of Our Lord. The Particle must be consumed immediately. You then go downstairs, wash your hand and take the wine and bread (zapivka) and leave the church for the next party to enter.
Only less than 10 people, including clergy and assistants, can be in the church at any time. Everyone is to comply with Social Distancing rules. Wipes or sprays will be given to anyone touching anything or kissing icons to protect themselves before and to protect others after contact was made.
We must do everything possible to stem the spread of Coronavirus; please care for your fellow parishioners.
