Dear Brothers and Sisters,
As of April 7th, York Region has been under the “state of emergency” to control the spread of COVID-19 with restrictions that also affect to our Parish.
Worship services will continue to be held regularly with a limit of 15% of the chapel’s capacity, mandatory maintenance of a distance of 2m and wearing face masks (more details here: https://www.york.ca/wps/portal/yorkhome/health/yr/covid-19/publichealthsafetymeasures/ and https://www.york.ca/wps/portal/yorkhome/health/yr/covid-19/mandatoryuseoffacemasksandcoverings/).
Sunday lunches as well as any gatherings in the upper hall after Divine Liturgy are, unfortunately, still not allowed.
We will continue to have only one Divine Liturgy on Sundays starting at 10AM.
To ensure that we do not exceed the quota of 15% of the capacity of the chapel, we ask parishioners who want to attend worship services to contact Aleksandar Cvijetinović in advance by email at email@example.com or text message at 416-993-0647 to be added to the schedule. We kindly request that in case of a change in plans that you please contact Aleksandar in time so that others would be allowed to attend the worship service.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
– Governing Board of St. Archangel Gabriel Parish in Richmond Hill
