We will not be able to have public services by order of Harris County Judge Lena Hidalgo through April 3rd, and this order may be extended beyond that date. Please keep an eye on your e-mail for updates.
We are still working on Livestreaming the services. We have figured out one way that will not work. Hopefully, we will soon find a way that will. We may be livestreaming tonight and/or tomorrow via Facebook, so if you are on Facebook, and if you have liked the St. Jonah page, you will get a notification, if it works. Otherwise, keep in mind that you can watch the services at Holy Cross Monastery via YouTube, just subscribe to their channel, and hit the notification bell: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQ-sqeQbmgzrL0t8uFJm4Ew
