Поздравляю всех с гражданским праздником Дня Благодарения, храни Всех Вас Господь.

August 3, 2021:  Message from Andrei Roudenko, Parish COVID-19 Protection Plan Coordinator


On August 1, 2021, San Mateo County issued an Order that requires all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, to wear face coverings when indoors in public settings, with limited exceptions.  The exceptions are: children younger than 2 years old, anyone who has trouble breathing (requires medical documentation), and anyone who is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.


The new County Order takes effect on Tuesday, August 3, 2021.


What does this mean for our parish? For the foreseeable future:


(NO CHANGE) All those who have previously been “invited” to attend services can do so, and can attend inside the church.  (Weekly invitations not necessary, and will not be issued.  Feel free to attend all services!)


(CHANGE)  Regardless of vaccination status, Congregation Members who attend our services indoors must wear face coverings.


(NO CHANGE) Those who have not been vaccinated must continue to wear face coverings when attending services outside the church whenever social distancing cannot be maintained.


(NO CHANGE) Until all COVID restrictions are completely lifted, we will continue to provide an optional alternative to attend services outdoors.


With gratitude, we ask for your continued cooperation and patience until restrictions are lifted.

Fear and Faith in the COVID Crisis

Why did God allow COVID-19 to appear?  And, what must we do?
