Parish Reopening Updates

We have begun the slow and gradual process of returning to normal parish life.

With the blessing and encouragement of His Eminence Archbishop Mark, and with our county now in the “yellow” phase for reopening, we have implemented a detailed plan to facilitate a limited number of attendees at the divine services. You can read the plan below.

While we are eager to begin phasing into normal parish life, we understand and respect the individual circumstances of each parishioner and family. At this point, even as the pandemic subsides, not everyone can or should return to church. The steps we are taking do not minimize the seriousness of the pandemic, nor is it a call for everyone to return. It will be the individual responsibility of each person to decide the right path forward for them and their family. There will be no judgement of anyone in this matter. At the same time, there are many in the parish who need, and are ready, for a path forward. Our intention is to provide the path for those people, knowing that over time it will become the right path for the rest. Pray and be at peace with the pace you set for yourself and your family.

If you would like to attend services at Holy Trinity please email or call Fr. Innocent at fr.innocent@wbholytrinity.org or call the rectory. Because space is limited due to social distancing requirements we need keep tabs on how many people will be attending the services. Should we near capacity, we will offer Divine Liturgy on another day of the week so everyone has the opportunity to attend. We do not anticipate running out of room for Saturday Great Vespers. 

Thank you for your love and patience with me and each other during this time. More to come.

With love in Christ, 

Fr. Innocent
