RESERVATIONS

Thank you for all your support during these trying times.  
Fr George, Deacon Harry and your Parish Council have been working hard to implement all the requirements to ensure a safe return to church and celebrate together once again.  We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate together through these uncharted waters. 

All parishioners must register to attend service. A reservation system has been implemented that ensures social distancing and maintains maximum capacity as directed. Upon arriving at church, you will be greeted and checked in by a Parish Council member at that door. We have limited seating, so you must be registered. You must also adhere to all recommendations as directed from His Eminence Metropolitan Evangelos at the bottom of this page:
