Our beloved Parishioners,
It is with tremendous joy and gladness that we announce the opening of our St. Thomas Greek Orthodox Church.
Please read carefully the following:
We will allow 40 people to register for Services and because of the limited capacity we will hold 3 Divine Liturgies in the weekend of the 13th & 14th of June.
There will be one Liturgy on Saturday, June 13, at 10:00 am. For those who register for this Liturgy, they MUST arrive at 9:30 am, and check in at the registration table outside. At 10:00 am the doors of the Church will close.
There will also be two Divine Liturgies on Sunday, June 14, – the first at 8:30 am and the second at 10:30 am.
For the first Sunday Liturgy, those who register MUST arrive at 8:00 am, and check in at the registration table outside. At 8:30 am the doors of the Church will close.
For the second Sunday Liturgy, those who register MUST arrive at 10:00 am, and check in at the registration table outside. At 10:30 am the doors of the Church will close.
In order to attend one of the three Divine Liturgies we ask you to register on the St. Thomas website https://goc-stthomas.com/registration/
For those who do not have access to email and the internet we will allow 5 people for each service to call the Church office for the purpose of registering.
The office hours that people can call to register are:
today, Wednesday, June 10, until 4 pm
and tomorrow, Thursday, June 11, from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm. After this, the registration will close.
NO ONE WILL BE PERMITTED TO ENTER THE CHURCH WITHOUT HAVING REGISTERED TO ATTEND SERVICES FOR THAT DAY.
Please see the instructions on the website to register. You will be permitted to register ONLY for one weekend service so that we can accommodate as many people as possible. Also, the people who will register for this weekend Services WIIL NOT be allowed to register for next week, so that we give the opportunity to every parishioner to come to the Divine Liturgy, since the number of the attendees is restricted to 50 total per Service (including the Altar servants, Cantors and Parish Council members). Please follow all instructions on the website. We will require you to wear masks at all times in the Church.
Since this will be our first weekend to reopen, and all this operation is unknown to all of us, we apologize beforehand for any inconvenience, and we ask for your patience, understanding and cooperation as we are trying to do the best we can to accommodate you.
We will continue to live-stream the Sunday-10:30 am Divine Liturgy.
We have all waited for this moment when we can come together (in a limited capacity) to worship as a Church and partake of the sacred Blood and Body of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We look forward to seeing you.
