St. Mary's has entered the Reopening Phase!

St. Mary's is currently open with limited attendance. We appreciate your patience and loving-kindness as we do our best to comply with state guidelines and practice obedience to our synod of bishops. We pray that this phase will go smoothly and safely, and that we return to less restricted practices soon!

If you are a parishioner that would like to attend a service, you must:

  1. Register on Realm to attend a service in person. Please arrive early for the service to be received by the registration team at the steps of the church. Click here to learn when to register for a service.
  2. Bring a completed copy of the sign-in sheet. We will have a few copies available at the church if you don't have a printer or forget yours.
  3. Follow the etiquette we've set up for the parish.

When to Register for A Service

In Realm, we open each Event for in-person registration early in the week, but please only register if you did not attend last week. Realm doesn't allow us to open registration for some parishioners and not others, so it is your responsibility to register at the right time! Additionally, for Sunday liturgies, we are personally emailing those who haven't come yet and inviting them to register first. This simple system allows everyone to have a turn to come pray in the church building and receive the Eucharist.

When to register for Saturday vespers:

  • If you did not attend last week, you may register to attend at any time.
  • If you did attend last week, you may register to attend on Thursday.

Registration for Saturday vespers will close on Friday.

When to register for Sunday divine liturgy:

  • If you did not attend last week, you may register to attend at any time.
  • If you did attend last week, you may register to attend on Friday.

Registration for Sunday liturgy will close at 4:00pm on Saturday.

For other services, please check the Event Description to see when you should register.

    Reopening Phase Etiquette

    Please follow these protocols while on the premises:

    1. Arrive early for registration.
    2. Use the hand sanitizers located at the entrance and exit of the building.
    3. Wash your hands according to guidelines published by provincial health authorities, which currently includes using soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
    4. Do not enter the nurseries, classrooms, bookstore, or fellowship hall.
    5. Do not light candles. Contact Eccl. Patricia if you would like to have a candle lit for you.
    6. Always maintain 6-foot social distancing from individuals who are not in your household, including when using the restrooms and lining up for registration and for holy Communion.
    7. Keep coats, purses, and other your personal belongs with you. They cannot be hung in the hall.
    8. Wear a mask or facial covering at all times. Masks may be removed only to receive holy Communion.
    9. Do not kiss icons, the chalice, or the priest’s hand.
    10. Do not pass items between attendees who are not from the same household.
    11. Remain at your designated spot during the service.
    12. Depart promptly after the service, maintaining social distancing protocols.

    Thanks for helping us keep St. Mary’s within health guidelines as set forth by the state and our diocese!
