We are in Phase one in re-opening our church. Ten parishioners may attend the Divine Liturgy. Confession is being offered on an individual basis only by appointment. Confessions are not currently being heard on Sundays. Divine Liturgy is being offered every Saturday and Sunday and, if necessary, during the week, in order to accomodate everyone who would like to return to church. YOU MUST BE SCHEDULED BY FR. PETER IN ORDER TO ATTEND A DIVINE LITURGY. If you did not go to Confession during Great Lent or afterwards, you must see Fr. Peter for Confession before you can receive Holy Communion. CDC is still recommending that anyone 65 years old or older should still remain home. CDC guidelines are being followed while in church (wearing of face masks, social distancing, no kissing of sacred articles, etc.). If you are interested in attending Divine Liturgy, please call Fr. Peter (518) 273-6262.
