The Re-Openning of Our Parish (Update)

Share |


Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Effective Friday, May 28, the State of New Jersey is lifting all mask mandates and social distancing requirements.  In the previous Executive Order, Gov. Murphy stated Churches could operate at 100% capacity while maintaining social distancing.  
Therefore, effective this weekend, masks will no longer have to be worn in Church by those that are fully vaccinated.  Those that are not fully vaccinated are, per CDC and the State of New Jersey mandate, requested to continue to wear a mask.  To be considered fully vaccinated, you must have received both doses of either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine or the single Johnson & Johnson vaccine and it has been two weeks since the last dose.  Also, we no longer need to social distance while in Church.

Pannikhida Services

The Church Council asks that all Pannikhida Services be restricted to the 3rd Sunday of each month.  The Pannikhida, if requested, will be celebrated right after the Liturgy and before Coffee Hour. 


From ancient times it has been an established custom to remember the dead on the 3rd, 9th 40th day after their repose. The parish will still respect this tradition, but for the anniversary of death or for the name day of our deceased loved ones, etc.,we would like to have this service monthly on the same Sunday.

(Arrangements can be made through Father)
