  • Plague protocol: Masks may be worn (but are not required) in the Church. Please be considerate of others and maintain appropriate distance during services – parents will need to be vigilant in keeping their children from roaming throughout the Church. Use all the available space in the Church - the entry, the narthex, the sanctuary (all the way to the front) and the North Kliros as needed.  If you or your family members are ill, please do not venture out, but call the priest to let us know and to arrange for the sacraments.
