LETTER FROM FR. JOHN — REGARDING THE COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) OUTBREAK AND OUR PARISH LIFE

We at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church are prayerfully staying on top developments with the Coronavirus outbreak, and are seeking to meet the spiritual and physical needs of our parishioners in a way that is wise, prudent, and in line with our sacred Tradition. In that light, I offer here the encyclical from His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros and the Holy Synod concerning this serious situation.

This document informs all of our liturgical life here at the parish. We strive to provide additional updates and directives via our email list and bulletin.

In Christ,

Fr. John
