Dear Parishioners,

Hope you are well and safe. 

As you know, Monday, June 22, New York City has entered into Phase 2 reopening. This means that crowd gathering restrictions have been modified allowing up to 25% capacity. For this reason, I would like to inform you that our Saint Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church is open with social distancing and attendance for anyone who wants to come and light a candle and pray or participate in the Divine Liturgy per the New York State Governor's order and guidelines.

Please know that the conditions and protocols set forth below must be followed:

1) If you are sick or not feeling well (including those with respiratory symptoms, those with compromised immune systems as well as the vulnerable elderly), please stay home.

2) If you plan to come to church please wear a mask.

3) Hands must be sanitized upon entry.

4) At all times, the faithful must maintain social distancing (6 feet apart) from one another, with the exceptions of families that have been living together.

I hope and pray that this pandemic will end soon and things will become better.

May our Lord Jesus Christ bless you and your families and hope to see you in Church!

With Love in Christ,

+Rev. Father Konstantinos Kalogridis

Economos

Αγαπητοί ενορίτες,

Ελπίζω να είστε καλά και ασφαλείς.

Όπως γνωρίζετε, από τη Δευτέρα 22 Ιουνίου, η Νέα Υόρκη έχει εισέλθει στην δεύτερη φάση επαναλειτουργίας. Αυτό σημαίνει ότι οι περιορισμοί συγκέντρωσης πλήθους έχουν τροποποιηθεί επιτρέποντας έως και 25% χωρητικότητα. Για το λόγο αυτό, θα ήθελα να σας ενημερώσω ότι η Ελληνική Ορθόδοξη Εκκλησία του Αγίου Δημητρίου μας είναι ανοιχτή για όποιον θέλει να έρθει και να ανάψει ένα κερί και να προσευχηθεί ή να συμμετάσχει στη Θεία Λειτουργία σύμφωνα με την εντολή και τις κατευθυντήριες γραμμές του Κυβερνήτη της Πολιτείας της Νέας Υόρκης.

Παρακαλούμε να γνωρίζετε ότι πρέπει να ακολουθούνται οι όροι και τα πρωτόκολλα που παρατίθενται παρακάτω:

1) Εάν είστε άρρωστοι ή δεν αισθάνεστε καλά (συμπεριλαμβανομένων εκείνων με αναπνευστικά συμπτώματα, εκείνων με εξασθενημένο ανοσοποιητικό σύστημα, καθώς και οι ευάλωτοι ηλικιωμένοι), παρακαλούμε να μείνετε στο σπίτι.

2) Εάν σκοπεύετε να έρθετε στην εκκλησία παρακαλώ φορέστε μια μάσκα.

3) Τα χέρια σας θα πρέπει να απολυμανθούν με αντισηπτικό κατά την είσοδο.

4) Ανά πάσα στιγμή, οι πιστοί πρέπει να διατηρούν την κοινωνική αποστασιοποίηση (6 πόδια χώρια) μεταξύ τους, με τις εξαιρέσεις των οικογενειών που μένουν μαζί.

Εύχομαι και προσεύχομαι αυτή η πανδημία να τελειώσει σύντομα και τα πράγματα να καλυτερέψουν.

Να ἐχετε πάντοτε την ευλογία του Κυρίου μας και θα χαρώ να σας δω στην Εκκλησία!

Με αγάπη Χριστού,

+Αιδ. Οικονόμος Κωνσταντίνος Καλογρίδης

Ιερατικώς Προϊστάμενος

Our Faith

The Sacraments
One of the best-known prayers of the Orthodox Church speaks of the spirit of God being "present in all places and filling all things." This profound affirmation is basic to Orthodoxy's understanding of God and His relationship to the world. Learn more»
