There is a saying, "Order is Heaven, disorder is hell." This can certainly be true in the church during the divine services! As our parish has grown in size, we are being more deliberate with the way that we conduct ourselves during the services. A parish council member will direct you when it is your time to get in line to recieve Holy Communion, and will dismiss you at the end of the service when it is your turn to get in line to recieve the antidoron. Please keep in mind that during both of these times the Church is still at prayer and it is respectful to keep our voices low if we must speak at all. When it comes to children, please let them be inside the Nave of the church as much as possible. If they are being disruptive it is okay to take a break for a few minutes, but it is also encouraged to let them stay with you in the main body of the church. The only times that we ask for you to take them out is if they are making noise during the reading of the Holy Gospel or the Homily. Thank you for your cooperation and for helping us keep order in the temple during our worship!
