Phase 1 Re-Opening of St. George - 06/26/2020

During the last week of June, the Parish Council received approval from Metropolitan Tikhon, Locum Tenens of the Albanian Archdiocese, for St. George to begin a gradual re-opening based on pre-approved guidelines.  The first service held was Divine Liturgy on Sunday, July 5, 2020.

The number of parishioners allowed inside for Divine Liturgy is capped at 40.  This is based on current civil (Connecticut) guidelines, which is for a maximum of 25% of capacity. 
 
These guidelines, procedures, and plans are not negotiable and require all to collectively cooperate and respect them. They are in place to maintain everyone’s safety and well-being, and were written to follow the guidelines provided by the State of Connecticut, and the Phase 1, Stage 1 guidance outlined in the Holy Synodal Guidelines (May 1, 2020). Before deciding whether or not you will be able to participate in person, please take the time to read the following three attachments:
