THE RE-OPENING OF OUR PARISH
REV MATTHEW SEARFOORCE
Dear Brothers and Sisters, His Eminence Archbishop Michael has Blessed our Plan for the Re-Opening of our Parish for worshipping together as a Parish Family. We are planning to start this Sunday with the celebration of Pentecost! There will be some changes with the way we will be doing things in order to protect ourselves now and for the foreseeable future, as Covid-19 is still a danger to all of us. We are making every attempt to protect our parish family from the virus.
Things that will be different:
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, in person services in our parish have been cut back for now. Fr Matthew sends out reader’s services via email each week to follow at home. In addition, the diocesan web page nynjoca.org/livestream has online services for viewing.
When services are held, they are celebrated with only the allowed number of people in attendance. Please contact Fr Matthew if you wish to attend as part of the restricted number.
(No one else should attend in person.)
(9:30 AM - Church School is before Liturgy during school year, except first Sunday of each month)
Private Confession – Half hour before any service
9:40 AM - Hours
(9:45 AM - General Confession on the first Sunday of each month, except during Great Lent)
10:00 AM - Divine Liturgy -
(Coffee Hour after Sunday Liturgy)
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)
