Dear Parishioners: Slowly, but surely we are seeing a lifting of restrictions on gatherings and wearing of Protective Items like face masks. The attendance in church is slowly increasing and I welcome you to consider attending Divine Liturgy. I wish to express a special thanks to all of you on behalf of the Parish for your continued support in the strange times that we are living in. Despite the restrictions placed on your attendance at Divine Liturgy and the various special Liturgical celebrations, your attendance via Facebook, your responses, your thoughts and prayers, your support for parishioners in need as well as the continued financial support that you have mailed in to the Parish is greatly appreciated. Together with the help of God we will survive this national crisis and come out of it stronger than ever spiritually and emotionally. May God bless you all. Fr. Iura Godenciuc.
