Additional information:
 
COVID Guidelines
Temperature checks upon entrance, wearing of face masks (Albanian language wear a mask poster), and maintaining 6 foot social distancing remains required for all services.  Although Connecticut does not have a headcount limit for church services, St. George does have a limit due to the requirement of 6-foot seating separation of family units in the pews.  Unfortunately at this time, the size and orientation of our pews limits our ability to allow unlimited attendance.

In order to accommodate the greatest number of attendees during Holy Week/Pascha Services while maintaining recommended distancing guidelines, we ask for your understanding with respect to seating arrangements. While parishioners may have certain seating preferences, our first priority will be to determine the seating that will allow for maximum attendance.  Thank you for your flexibility and cooperation.
 
Live-streamed services
All services at this time are planned to be Live-streamed on Facebook.  As we have been presenting over the past 6 weeks, you may view services on your smartphone or PC by going directly to the St. George Orthodox Church Facebook page, or to go to the link on the Home page of St. George’s website.

Service booklets
Due to COVID restrictions, we cannot hand out Service Booklets during Holy Week.  Unfortuanately, we do not have service booklets for each service to be held at St. George, however for those booklets we do have available, the link for a PDF version is located above with each appropriate listed service.  These are available for parishioners to use at home (when watching a Live-stream service), or to use electronically on your phone when attending a service in person.   Due to reading comfort, some may prefer to print out a copy at home for use in church.
