Easter Season

From Easter Sunday until the Ascension, May 13, we greet one another as follows:
Christ is Risen, Truly He is Risen!
Христос Воскрес , Воістину Воскрес!

Reminder during the Paschal Season until Pentecost Sunday we do not kneel in church.
It is a tradition not to kneel from Resurrection Sunday until Pentecost to celebrate Christ’s triumph over death.

 COVID Rules Update: 

Weekend and Lenten liturgies and services will continue to be celebrated following the schedule in the weekly bulletin. Please remember to follow these guidelines:

  • All parishioners and guests entering church for any Divine Liturgy will be required to sign in.
  • We are asking that you enter through the Sacristy door ONLY.
  • Upon entering you will be asked to give your name(s) and phone number(s) to the designated volunteer(s).
  • Per Onondaga County and New York State Laws, the church is required to keep track of all parishioners and guests attending any and all services. Failure to comply by the church could result in the church not being allowed to hold services.
