Worship Service Attendance

Welcome! Please sign up for an upcoming liturgical service.  Each sign up is only for ONE household.  Please list all members of your household who will be attending.  Thank you!

HOLY WEEK AND PASCHA 2021

(ONLINE SIGN UP BEGINS ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7TH AT 12 NOON)

  • In an effort to accommodate all the faithful, seating for Holy Week and Pascha will be in the CHURCH (capacity of 120) and, when listed, in the GYM (capacity of 100).  There will also be TENT on the back (east) lawn for overflow.
  • It is required that all who attend in the Church or the Gym, sign up in advance using the "Sign-Up Genius".
  • Walk-Ins CANNOT be accommodated in the Church or the Gym, but will be directed to the tent on the back lawn (with audio/video feed).
  • HOLY FRIDAY EVENING - Our plan is to have a procession outside with all the faithful and conclude the service outside.
  • HOLY SATURDAY EVENING/ANASTASIS SERVICE - We will begin all together OUTSIDE at 11:30pm.  After the resurrection service, those who have signed-up for the Church or Gym, can enter for the Orthros/Liturgy. ENTRANCE FOR GYM WILL BE FROM THE EAST GYM DOORS.
  • Our goal is to gather everyone to worship as a parish family in a respectful and safe manner.   Regardless of where you may be seating, we want all faithful to fully participate in the worship and sacraments of our Church and received their blessed palm, flower, egg, etc... Please follow the guidance of the Parish Council/Ushers while at Church, wear your face mask properly, socially distance and arrive on time for services.
  • If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call the Church Office.  If you are in need of anything during the services, please speak with a parish council member.  Limited chairs will be available on the back lawn for the elderly or those in need.
  • In addition to the live feed we will have in the gym and back lawn, all Holy Week services will also be live-streamed for those who are not able to be there in person.

Please note the following guidelines regarding Church Services

  • At the current time we are limited to about 100 people in our Church per service in order to accommodate proper social distancing.
  • If you are feeling sick, have a fever or other symptoms of illness, please continue to worship from your home, as our services will continue to be live-streamed.
  • The state and the Metropolis encourage those in the high risk population, as well as those caring for them, to continue live-streaming the services from their homes.

Coming to Church

  • You can only sign up for your own household - not for other households or extended family.  
  • Firmly noted, only pre-registered worshippers are permitted to enter the Church.  If your name is not on the list for the specific service, you are not permitted to enter.  Having said that, if someone does "walk-in" and there is space we will try our best to accommodate them IF SPACE PERMITS.   However, this is not guaranteed and should not be the regular means of attending service.  We do want everyone to worship with us, so please call in advance to avoid any confusion or disappointment.
  • Once your registration is confirmed, you will receive an e-mail re-affirming the established guidelines along with screening questions that you should reflect upon and answer before attending.
  • Upon arriving at Church, please check-in with a parish council member in the Narthex. Our Parish Council members will confirm your registration, assist you with candles and take you to your assigned seating area (people of the same household will be seated together). Please honor this guideline and only sit with your household.  Beyond that, we try to maintain 6-foot distancing between individuals/households. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.
  • Faithful will also be seated in every other pew to help in socially distancing.  Rows that are CLOSED will be roped off, please do not sit in these rows.
  • Every person over the age of 2 (3 years old & up) must wear a face mask/covering for the duration of the service and while inside the Church.  Please wear this properly, covering your mouth and nose.  There may be differing opinions on face masks/coverings, but we ask that we all honor this guideline to keep everyone safe and make everyone comfortable.
  • Priest (s) and Chanter (s) are exempt from wearing face masks during and only while the actual service is being offered.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available in the narthex for your use before entering the nave (Church proper).  We encourage you to bring your own as well.  Hand sanitizer is also available on the handrails as you step up onto the solea.  It is a good practice to use as you come up for communion while removing your mask.
  • Please remain in your designated seating area.  The community center/fellowship hall is closed - there is no access.  Please use washrooms in the narthex.  Children under the age of 18 should be accompanied by an adult at all times.
  • Please follow the direction of the parish council and Father for Holy Communion and dismissal.  Please do not congregate on front steps, but move to the parking lot so that people can easily exit the Church.
  • ONE LAST REMINDER...Please remember to properly wear your face masks, practice good social distancing and sanitize and/or properly wash your hands.

Thank you for your cooperation to help keep everyone safe and healthy as we live our Orthodox Faith in this unique time in history.
