COVID-19 Attendance Procedures
Due to public health concerns surrounding COVID-19/Coronavirus, and following the directives of our Metropolitan, public services are currently limited to 26 attendees total (including the priest and altar server). Once the maximum number of people allowed are present, the doors will be locked. Services continue to be live-streamed on our Facebook page. Once this crisis passes, we look forward to returning to a normal schedule.
**Akathists take place on Zoom on Wednesday nights at 7 pm until the start of Lent. Please email Fr. Ignatius for the link if you would like to attend or participate or attend.** PDF copies of the Akathists are available.

- If you have symptoms such as a cough, fever, shortness of breath, pain or pressure in the chest, chills, new loss of sense of taste or smell or a sore throat, DO NOT come to church. Stay home and recuperate or seek medical attention if necessary. Please refrain from returning to church until you have been free from these symptoms for at least 14 days. Furthermore, if you are 65 years old or older or immuno-compromised, it is advisable for you to stay home. Signs listing symptom screening questions will be posted at the door.
- All people entering the church for services will have their temperature checked with a no-touch infrared thermometer which is pointed at the forehead or behind the ear. If your temperature reads 99.2 or higher, you will be asked to go home. Karen Kuntz will be administering this.
- Please wear a face mask while attending services. Face masks will be removed during the reception of Communion and should be put back on afterward. Masks will be available in the narthex for people to use. The priest, altar server, and two chanters will wear face shields.
- Upon entering and exiting, please use the hand sanitizer that is on the small table by each door leading into the nave. If you must cough or sneeze, do so into the crook of your arm. If you cough or sneeze into your hands or blow your nose, please use the hand sanitizer immediately. Fr. Ignatius will be sanitizing his hands several times throughout the services, including right before the distribution of Holy Communion
- Please stand at least six feet apart from anyone else outside of your household, including while in the Communion and Dismissal lines. Seating is arranged to help maintain at least six feet of distance between family groups. Tape will be placed on the floor to remind all of proper spacing in the communion and dismissal lines.
- The blessed bread will be distributed by either the altar server or priest, who will be wearing gloves.
- Please refrain from shaking hands, hugging or kissing during the Kiss of Peace (or any other time). Instead, greet each other with a bow if you would like. You may also refrain from kissing the priest's hand.
- We realize small children won't stay still and likely won't wear a mask. Parents should feel free to bring them anyway if they are otherwise comfortable with having their children in that environment.
- Windows will be opened if outside temperatures permit.
- Nothing has changed regarding how we view the Eucharist in light of concerns that receiving the Body and Blood of Christ could be an opportunity for the spread of disease. Holy Communion will be distributed in the same manner it always has been with this small exception. Please open your mouth wide and tip your head back and Father will try to drop the Eucharist into your mouth. Refrain from closing your lips on the spoon. If the spoon touches anyone's mouth, it will be wiped with the kalima (red cloth) in between uses.
