Message Reagarding Phased Restoration of Church Services

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY the guidelines for attending services HERE


Dear St. Sarkis Armenian Church Family,


As everyone is aware, our church services, events, and functions have been suspended throughout our diocese since March as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic. The physical separation of the members of our Church has been a painful reality to endure, and we look forward with great hope to the eventual full restoration of our diocese, parish life, and church services. We set our hope on our Lord Jesus Christ and His infinite mercy.

 

Phased Re-opening Guidelines

In accordance with the latest directive of our Eastern Diocese, this coming Sunday, May 31, 2020, our diocese and parish will take the first steps in re-opening our churches. Please understand that this is a partial and limited re-opening of our parish, and full restoration of church services and sacraments will be accomplished in subsequent phases by direction from Bishop Daniel and diocesan leadership. 


Our ability as a parish to progress to later phases is dependent on our ability to maintain these current guidelines. With that understanding, we want to emphasize the importance of observing these guidelines and urge everyone to read them carefully (link below) in order to ensure the safety and unity of our community.


Therefore, it is the responsibility of every member of our community to help us maintain these guidelines in unity of spirit. If it becomes apparent that our parish is unable to observe these guidelines, our phased re-opening may be delayed. We thank everyone in advance for their patience, attention, understanding, and support during this challenging time.


We continue to pray for all our community members and families. May the Lord keep you in His peace,

 

Fr. Samuel and the Parish Council
