We congratulate Dorrie Papademetriou as she will be inducted into the Atlantic County Women's Hall of Fame on Thursday evening, June 17th. Axios!
Mask wearing is now optional, but we are strongly encouraging those who are not vaccinated and those who have medical conditions to continue wearing masks.
We will not be social distancing as we were before. However, those with special medical situations should contact Ginny, Lisa, or Father George so that they can attend the services safely and with peace of mind.
We will no longer register online for church services.
We should also sanitize our hands upon entering the Church, and we are still not kissing icons or the priest's hand.
If anyone is feeling sick they should stay home in order to protect others.

Holy Communion is offered to those baptized Orthodox Christians who have prepared themselves for the reception of the Sacrament by prayer and fasting. Blessed Bread is available for all our visitors at the very end of the Divine Liturgy. Our Sunday School students receive Holy Communion first and then we will approach from the center aisles, starting with the front pews, one pew at a time.
