THOMAS SUNDAY, May 9, 2021

This day is called Antipascha (meaning "in the stead of Pascha," not "in opposition to Pascha") because with this day, the first Sunday after Pascha, the Church consecrates every Sunday of the year to the commemoration of Pascha, that is, the Resurrection.

We continue to safely accomodate the number of parishioners who attend while maintaining the six foot 'social distancing' requirement.  Please follow the directions of our ushers as we continue to socially distance for safety from the coronavirus.

Starting with the Divine Liturgy of the Anastasis, Holy Communion is offered in the traditional manner at the normal point of the Liturgy.  Everyone is to approach by the center aisle pew-by-pew, maintaining your distance in the line using the designated social distancing X's that have been placed in the center aisle.  You may remove your masks momentarily to receive Holy Communion.  Please do not touch the red communion cloth; it will be held underneath your chin; it is not a napkin.

Please faithfully observe all precautions as we continue to protect our parish family from the coronavirus.
