Feastday Needs: Donations are welcome of grapes for the feast of the Transfiguration, Artos for the feast of the Dormition, and flowers for the icons. Please let Fr. Stephen know if you plan to donate. Thank you.
COVID Directives: Metropolitan Nicholas has lifted all COVID directives he issued. We are now able to participate in church as was pre-pandemic. Masks are not required for anyone, but anyone may still wear a mask if they desire. Icons and religious items may be kissed to venerate. Social distancing is not required. Holy Communion and Antidoron will be adminis- tered in the normal, pre-pandemic way. Please continue to follow any directions from Priest and Parish Council.
