St. George continues to operate under its original re-opening plan which was developed to meet the Phase 1, Stage 1 Holy Synodal Guidelines. This plan was approved for use on June 25th.
The approved plan allows St. George only to hold Sunday Divine Liturgies with a maximum of 40 attendees (maximum of 25% occupancy). For the specific plan details and guidelines, click onto our following page link from June 26, 2020: https://www.stgeorgetrumbull.org/news_200627_1
To maximize outside fresh-air ventilation, all Divine Liturgies have been held with the windows open. This is continuing for the winter months - experts recommend bringing in as much outside fresh air as possible. The heat remains on at the same time the windows are open, the church can be a little chilly, especially near the perimeter locations. While this is not energy efficient, the Parish Council is prioritizing on health and safety during this COVID pandemic.
For those who attend Sunday Divine Liturgy, please dress accordingly to keep yourself comfortable.
