Holy Week 2020 Resources
In response to the current state of COVID-19, and for the safety of the clergy and faithful, the Holy Eparchial Synod held a conference call deciding the following:
- Holy Week and Easter services will still be held with the current "closed-doors" policy in place, with minimum clergy and helpers. All services will be broadcasted via Facebook Live for the faithful to follow along at home.
- There will be no distribution of traditional material offerings, this includes palm crosses, Holy Unction, flowers, eggs, Holy Light.
To read the full text of the press release please following this link.
Please visit our Facebook Page to keep up to date on these issues, to watch and pray along during all services which will be broadcasted live, as well as for a schedule of services.
Please use the following resources to enhance your spiritual journey through Holy Week and Easter. Below are the compiled service books to follow along throughout the week, as well as a couple of guides on commemorating and celebrating the events of the week.
Finally, please keep in mind that even though the doors are closed, I will still be here. Please contact me if you have any needs.
I wish you all a blessed journey to celebrate the Resurrection of our Saviour.
