Reminder: The Yankee District AHEPA Family Scholarship Application Deadline is July 31st. You can find the application on the Organizations page.

Saint George Church OPENED for a maximum of 50 people Sunday, June 21st. For the time being, only the first 50 (by mandate, 25% capacity) will be allowed to enter. This 50 includes everyone - even the priest, cantor, and altar assistant.

Please put your mask on before entering.

All will enter and maintain a clear flow through the front main church doors. Congregating is not permitted. Upon entering you will sanitize your hands and give your name and best phone number. Margo is an RN and has volunteered to check temperatures at the entrance. If we discover that someone at the service is sick, we will call everyone to let them know that they should self-quarantine for 14 days. This list will not be shared with anyone.

There will be taper candles to light at the front door; all other candles (red 5-day glass and votive) can be lit by a designated council member at the beginning of Orthros, the beginning of Divine Liturgy, and after the blessing of The Gifts only. We want to limit the amount of activity and traffic before, during, and after the service to maintain social distancing (6 feet) and clear flow. PLEASE FOLLOW THE DIRECTION OF THE ARROWS ON THE FLOOR.

Holy Communion will be available after the service only. The people in the first pew will go up first. Wait to go up after the pew in front of you is on their way out to go up. Individual sanitized metal spoons and disposable napkins will be used and antidoron will be in individual bags for those who wish to receive. Spoons are boiled every week for 10 minutes and napkins are burned. After Communion all will proceed directly out to their cars - congregating is not permitted. Please keep a clear flow as you exit. All will exit the side door to the back parking lot only.

No tray will be passed - a tray will be there as you leave the church to go out. Please be prepared to have your money ready as you go out;

No change can be made from the tray. Checks and cash are gladly accepted, in envelopes if notes are necessary. We hope to see you there!

The service will still be available to view on facebook and via link on the website for those who are not able to come. Thank you!

 

We have:

  • removed Liturgy books and other items from all pews;

  • removed cushions from all pews for sanitizing seating;

  • made direction arrows for clear flow to enter and exit the building;

  • made signs for clear safety guidelines (see a few below);

  • purchased disinfectant and sanitizer;

  • made changes to the service to help with flow and social distancing.

You do not have to come right away.

For those who are not healthy enough to return and for those who are simply not ready, please know we will continue to provide live-streamed services. The links are now on the "Services" page of the website. 

We are keeping the hall, kitchen, classrooms and offices CLOSED.

Only the church itself will be open for now. If you are planning to come for services, please be prepared to put on your mask, come directly to the church front doors, and then to return to your vehicles directly after the service. 

Holy Communion will only be received at the end of the service.

This will take some getting used to, but at the end of the service, Father will have individual, sanitized, metal spoons and napkins for all those who wish to receive. All communicants will leave their seats front to back, in order, not all at once, to receive and then leave the church to return to their vehicles. 

If everyone is mindful of others and of their own well being, we will be able to open and remain open safely. If these safety measures are not followed, we will have to close to prevent dangerous contamination. So...

Thank You

for helping keep everyone safe.
