68th St. Construction Update
68th Street (between Milwaukee Avenue and State Street) remains closed to thru traffic
Post Date: 07/21/2021 2:14 PM
68th St. between Milwaukee Avenue and State Street is currently under construction. The contractor is continuing sewer work for the next couple weeks on the north end of the project near Milwaukee Avenue. Lining the sewer under the road improves its function, particularly when we get heavy rains.
Fixing the surface of 68th St will occur after this phase, but we are several weeks out from this. One of the final steps will be to add bike lane markings on one side of the road – an effort that contributes towards Wauwatosa’s bicycle and pedestrian safety.
68th Street (between Milwaukee Avenue and State Street) remains closed to thru traffic. This road is scheduled to remain closed through mid to late October.

Following the May 16th Revised Guidelines (see Bulletin Inserts section) from our Holy Metropolis, we are grateful for the ability to return to many of our practices prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. These guidelines are for the fully vaccinated. Individuals who are not fully vaccinated are encouraged to continue to observe wearing of a face mask over the nose and mouth, and to observe social distancing.
Please always follow the directions of our ushers.
Some of the upcoming changes to our parish are the following:
- No reservations are required
- Self-sign-in system (an usher will monitor)
- Specific Socially Distancing & Mask-wearing section will be implemented. Ask an usher to be seated there, if you so desire.
- Veneration of icons can resume
Our church will continue to provide online live streaming of church services through Facebook Live on our Facebook page and on our YouTube page: https://tinyurl.com/StsCnH-YouTube
Plus, now you can "Light a Candle - Say a Prayer". Just visit https://onrealm.org/StsCnH/-/give/candles to make your donation online and send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) with the number and type of candles along with who/what you would like us to pray for and will do so at our next church service.
Realm (onrealm.org) & it's app, Connect, is not for one-way communication, from our church leaders to you. It can (& should) be used for the communiation between the members of each Group. JOY is the first ministry that has adopted Realm as their communication tool. Ask them.
By the way, would anyone like to lead a Group? What if we created a Group where the members could help each other out during this pandemic? If someone is immunocompromised, for instance, or has young children, and can't go to the grocery store, they could ask if anyone else is going and if they are willing to pick up whatever they need (or, pick up their prescription, or a 10,000 piece puzzle for the kids...) and deliver to their house... Email the church (firstname.lastname@example.org) your ideas but keep in mind, that no Groups can be created/activated until someone steps up to lead them. (Hint: It's not hard... just accepting requests to join the Group and keeping the conversation going).
Want to test it out? You can join our Prayer Requests Group (In Groups, search in Community for Prayer Requests).
