As we announced earlier this week, we are able to have parishioners attend services again, though in accordance with Diocesan directives, we will have to maintain social distancing for the time being, and so are asking that people sign up for the Liturgies they will be attending. The sign up list for Sunday May 3rd is full, but the other liturgies are not. Anyone who wishes to come to the liturgy on Saturday May 2nd, or Saturday May 9th, may go ahead and sign up. Please also continue to pray that we will soon be able to fully resume our normal routine.
We will continue to livestream the Liturgies on Facebook, which you can watch by liking our page, and clicking the notification bell:
You may also be interested in watching the services at Holy Cross Monastery via YouTube. They do daily services, and the quality of their videos is generally better than we are able to do right no. Just subscribe to their channel, and hit the notification bell:

I will post a similar article each week until this crisis is over.
