I pray that you are all doing well during these very difficult times.

I miss each and every one of you!


After discussion with Father Taras and our Parish Board, we have decided to begin Religious Education for the 2020-2021 school year on Sunday, September 27, 2020 with a different format.


Our hope is to have two classes, divided by age, in the church hall following Holy Communion. Students may report to the church hall at that time and we will provide instructions.  The same precautions that take place currently during the Divine Liturgy will apply.  Masks and social distancing at the tables will be required.


Each week may be a little different, and I am sure we will learn as we go along.  My hope for this year is the same always, to provide a class for any student wishing to attend. We acknowledge that some may not be comfortable in attending, and that is completely understandable.


First Confession class and preparation for the spring of 2021 will begin towards the end of this year. Information will be provided in the upcoming weeks after we see how this new schedule is working.  Our students from 2020 and any new candidates for 2021 will be joined together for spring 2021.


Again, this is new for all of us and may require adjustment after a few weeks.

Please contact me directly with any specific questions or concerns.  My contact information is below.  I look forward to seeing everyone soon!
