Nativity of the Virgin Mary Orthodox Church
Home blessings this year will be scheduled via this sign up list per the Diocesan directive.
Diocesan include the following:
- If not signed up - the home will not be blessed.
- Homes must be free of covid symptoms for all residents and those in attendance for at least 10 days.
- The time for the home blessing is to be limited to not more than 30 minutes
- All must be masked and maintain social distancing
- If cases should increase dramatically, home blessings for the remainder of this year may be canceled until such a time situations improve. In the event that cancelations need to be made, Fr. Nicholas will contact the family(ies) and inform them.
The sign up slots include "location = TBD". I'm intending to update this based on those signed up. My hope is that this might possibly facilitate focusing on a target location/region of the St. Louis metro area to reduce the need to drive to opposite ends of the region in the same period of time. I also hope that it might at least help facilitate more home blessings to take place in the same area at the same time. I mention this realizing that often scheduling for each household is idiosyncratic. For now the sign up list is for the current month. Additional dates and time slots will be added as we proceed through the season.
Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Thank you!
