Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia

Important Parish Information

March 2021

The church is open for worshippers to attend services, however, please read the rules below before arriving at church. We will continue to livestream the services via our YouTube channel

General principles:

  1. Masks must be worn in church at all times.
  2. In church, a distance of 6 feet (2 meters) must be maintained between people (families count as one unit for the purpose of distancing; they should stand close together, but keep 6 feet away from others).
  3. In church, instructions from the clergy and parish officers are to be followed with regard to movement and comportment.
Blessing Easter Baskets

Christ is Risen! Truly He is Risen!

Blessing of baskets: The blessing of baskets will occur on Holy Saturday, May 1st, between 2 & 4 p.m.

A line will be organized outside and each person will come up one at a time.  Fr. Victor will bless each basket individually. 

To avoid a large crowd at once, we ask, to the extent possible, that those with last names starting with the letters:

  • A - I come between 2:00 pm and 2:45 pm
  • J - Q come between 2:45 pm and 3:15 pm
  • R - Z come between 3:15 pm and 4:00 pm 

The church will be open during this period for the veneration of the Shroud. 

Procession for Pascha: This year, those who plan on remaining for the service on Pascha night will not exit the church for the procession. Those who plan on leaving shortly after the procession should remain outside before midnight.

Pascha services will be livestreamed.

Reminder: The governor's mask mandate remains in force, which includes outdoors on church property.
