Read Fr. Michael’s letter here with all of the details. The following is only a few points covered in the letter.

Effective immediately, all of our services will be served with only the priest, the chanter, and a few altar servers. All services will be live streamed on our Facebook page.

Please note the schedule on to the left.

When you tune in to our services on the video feed, please pray with us! Please don’t simply have it on in the background while you go about other activities. Make your home into a “little church.” Light a candle in front of an icon. Stand in your homes when it is appropriate to stand. Sit in a respectful manner when it is appropriate to sit. Put the video on your computer screen or television. Make a time for prayer.

A celebration was held that weekend to mark the full preparation of the church. The parish of St. John Chrysostom undertook a “new beginning” in the life our the church on August 5, 2007, when we approved the construction of our new facility with sanctuary seating for 200 people, church school classrooms, office space, and a fellowship hall that serves as a meeting place for our church family.
