Update to Church Service Livestream Schedule

Update to Church Service Livestream Schedule

After much prayerful consideration, our abbot Fr. Seraphim has decided to make a change to our church live-streaming schedule. Going forward, our daily services will continue to be broadcast, but the Vigils and Divine Liturgies for Sundays and the Twelve Great Feasts will no longer be streamed.

This decision was made after considering the many reports we have received of live-streamed church services causing some of the faithful to no longer attend the divine services at their home parishes, despite the fact that by the grace of God church life has now essentially returned to normal. While we understand that there are a number of people who are in fact unable to travel to an Orthodox parish due to circumstances beyond their control, at the same time we need to consider the impact that our broadcasting of church services online has on the Church as a whole. We sincerely ask the forgiveness of those who are unable to attend church in person on Sundays and Great Feasts, and hope and pray that these people can find another way to participate in the church services on these occasions.

Again, our daily cycle of services will continue to be made available online, including the Vigils and Divine Liturgies on feast days other than the Twelve Great Feasts.

    Dear Fathers,

    This breaks my heart and leaves an emptiness like that experienced upon the death of a loved one. I will also miss the sermons – I look forward to them every week! I hope you will consider posting them on your website with regularity.. Thank you.
