A message dated 03/13/20 regarding Liturgy attendance in the wake of COVID-19
The Most Reverend Alexander, Archbishop of OCA Diocese of Dallas, the South, and the Bulgarian Diocese
In response to the contagious nature of the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19, we have been asked to make some temporary changes to our regular schedule of services. All individuals are being asked, as Archbishop Alexander states, out of love for our neighbors, to self-quarantine for a short while so that this can pass. Please see the calendar for updates to services between 03/13/2020 and 03/29/2020.
We are working to stream the Presanctified Liturgy on Wednesday Evening and Divine Liturgy on Sunday Mornings, which will be served with minimal clergy and choir, as Archbishop Alexander recommends in his message, on facebook live. Please check our facebook page for updates and a link to live streaming as soon as it is up and running.
In the interim, Vespers and Akathists are cancelled until 3/29. In the spirit of "keeping vigil in our cells" you may pray the typika at home.
