Light a Candle!

Lighting a candle as part of prayer is a natural expression seen in Orthodox Churches. If you cannot be with us in person, you have the opportunity to virtually light a candle, say a prayer, and consider a donation through this interactive app.

Additional information on livestreaming of Divine Liturgy & other services throughout United States can be found at https://www.goarch.org/live-broadcasts.


We Are Open (with limitations)!!!

Over the past couple of months we have carefully developed a very precise routine that has proved very useful.  Thank you also for all the faithful who participated and followed all guidelines.  Please continue to sign up and be emboldened to participate - we are ready for you to come back!  Strict guidelines apply - please read carefully by clicking the link: Reopening guidelines

Divine Liturgy Sign-up Instructions

Social distancing regulations (six foot rule) limit the number of families we can accommodate to twenty.  We therefore much appreciate if you sign up ahead if time for the month of June.  Please make sure to carefully review the guidelines that we sent previously before you make your selection.

Instructions :
 
  1. Sign up for as many Sundays as you are able to attend.  Your family (people living together with no social separation) counts as one.  Do not change the quantity according to the number of people.  We can accommodate twenty families at this point, excluding people serving.  
  2. If any family member is ready to receive Holy Communion, please sign up for one of the available slots.  We ask the faithful to receive every other week for now.  Please contact Fr. Costin for instructions at 978-837-8623 if it is the first time you receive after the reopening, or if you have trouble signing up.
  3. Click on the link https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0A45AEAA22A0FD0-annunciation make your selection and then click the submit button. You will get a confirmation email and a reminder two days before the service.  If you change your mind, you can revisit the sign up and make changes.   
  4. Thank you for your cooperation!
