April 3, 2021:
After the entire province entered lockdown on April 3, the maximum degree of occupancy for the church was lowered to 15% and this means a maximum of 30 persons, including those in the social room. Owed to the low number of parishioners that can attend the religious services in person, we would like to reiterate our request to notify us in advance about your intention to attend Sunday's services, Saturday morning's general commemoration services or the one taking place on the day of St. George's Feast (April 23). This can be done by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and indicating the date of the religious service to be attended as well as the number of persons to participate. We would like to continue to ask those whose plans are changing to notify us that they will no longer be able to attend the booked religious service, such that we can release their seats to the next persons on the waiting list. We would like to thank you for your understanding and cooperation under these difficult times.

The General Meeting of the members will take place on February 14, starting with 2 pm, whereas the meeting of the Ladies Committee will take place on February 7, starting with 4 pm. Because of the current restrictions, both meetings will take place virtually, by means of Zoom. For meeting details, please check the corresponding announcement distributed via email (Subject line: "Liturgical schedule - month of February") or contact the Parish Council at email@example.com
