Dear Parishioners:

Christ is Risen! Indeed He is Risen!

The Committee would also like to remind parishioners that:

  • The Committee member at the door will review the procedures with each attendee upon arrival.
  • There is no kissing or touching of icons, including touching and kissing icons while masked.
  • Parishioners need to select a row designated for occupancy and remain in the row. Please do not change rows to avoid touching areas to be occupied by other parishioners.
