As our Province begins to open up, certain measures are being taken to ensure the safety of our community and the public. One such measure is the limited attendance at places of worship. Currently (but this could change) churches and other places of worship are limited to 50 people inside or 30% of their capacity. Given the size of St. Nicholas (small), and the direction of ensuring 6′ of physical distancing between congregants, we can only accommodate 30 people at any service. This is a challenge given that we normally have about 70 people on any given Sunday.
To address this challenge, we are serving multiple Liturgies throughout the week to accommodate as many people as possible, and requesting that people notify us with their intention to come, by emailing StNicholasofNarol@gmail.com
It is our heartfelt desire not to turn away of our members, nor to turn away any visitors (of which we have a few during the summer), and we will do whatever we can to accommodate those seeking the safety and security of our parish community. May the Lord bless!
