ATTENTION: NEW RESERVATION PLATFORM

Please be advised: While we are all surely grateful that the vaccination process has begun, COVID is still a very real threat to our greater community. We have been encouraged by our Archdiocese to remain vigilant in our precautionary measures and social distancing practices. With this in mind, and in order to also be in compliance with our local authorities, our parish has established an online/phone-in reservation platform for those who wish to attend services in-person. This is being done in anticipation of the numbers of Faithful expected from Palm Sunday through Pascha. Registration will be required for all who wish to attend services in-person, as seating will be limited. Please remain prayerful and rest assured that our Parish Council is working diligently to come up with creative solutions so that as many of our Faithful as possible may be able to participate in Worship.
