FAMILIES AND CHILDREN
We want everyone to participate in our services, therefore, it is extremely important to us that both parents and children feel comfortable in our church. Our services are quite long, so if at any point you need to take your child out of the sanctuary, please feel free to do so. There is space in the vestibule, as well as in the basement if your kids need a break :)
Holy Communion is only for members of the Orthodox Church who have prepared themselves through prayer, fasting and regular confession. However, everyone is welcome to come forward and to partake of the blessed bread at the conclusion of the service.
All are welcome to join us for coffee hour after the Divine Liturgy on Sunday mornings and for potluck dinners after Presanctified Liturgies during Great Lent.
- Note: Currently we are not offering coffee hour (fellowship) due to COVID, but look forward to re-insituting the "communion after the Communion" once this season has passed!
