►Church Attendance: Dear Parishioners, I hope that you and your family members had a blessed and joyful Easter. The good news of Covid-19 vaccination continues to raise our hopes for overcoming the pandemic. We continue to pray for all those involved in working to overcome this pandemic. I want to share my joy that many of our parishioners took part in the Easter church services. As churches now invite all people to come back and attend the Divine Liturgies, I am kindly asking you to continue to care for the well-being of all our faithful and ensure their safety throughout these days:
*Therefore, I invite you to return in-person for celebration of the Saturdays/Sunday Liturgies.
*Please continue to practice social distancing.
*Please show reverence to the holy icons without kissing or touching them.
*For the infirm, sick, and homebound I invite their family members to help them watch services through live-streaming.
*Please continue to wear masks during the church services.
May God continue to bless our parish community!

►Information about the Covid-19 vaccination: Dear parishioners, the following is the information about the vaccinations that will be facilitated through the City Hall of Auburn, NY. Please call the parish office if you are interested and we will make a list of all our parishioners who wish to receive their vaccines:
«I am reaching out on behalf of the City Manager to you as part of your church affiliation. As part of our assistance with vaccine distribution efforts, we are working to reach out to churches to provide us with names of people from their congregations who still are in need of vaccinations. Anyone over 50 years of age, or over 18 with an underlying health condition, is eligible. Attached is a spreadsheet with the information we would need to provide a list to vaccine providers. It is our hope and effort that we can get your people in for vaccines in a timely manner, depending on the supply that is being provided to our community through different partners. Please send along names and the information requested in the spreadsheet, and I will forward these on to our partners.
