We're in Phase 1 of our re-opening. We'll be serving 3 liturgies a week for a while to be able to serve as many of the parish as possible. We'll be setting up Liturgical Groups which will determine which day which group of people can come to Church. We will be following strict Social Distancing. We will be having 9 total people in the congregation for the beginnig of Phase 1. It is our hope that the Covid 19 Virus situation improves and we can bump that up to 18, then back to full participation. We thank one and all for their patience and dedication to thier home parish.
Through the prayers of St. Herman, Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on us!
Unfortunately our pierogi sale scheduled for April has been postponed due to the Covid 19 Virus situation. As soon as we are sure that it is safe to do so, we will gear up production for pierogies and have a sale. We appreciate your patience. May God bless your Lenten Struggles. May God keep you safe and healthy this Pachal Season.
Our Mission Statement:
"From this day forth, from this hour, from this minute, let us love God above all."
-St. Herman of Alaska
St. Herman of Alaska Orthodox Church considers it our special calling first and foremost to bring the Light of Christ and His Church to the small corner of the world that He has gathered us. We are here to witness to the Life of the Holy Spirit in the Church, our Holy Tradition, which is not merely adhering to a set of rules, but rather, letting Christ be the rule of our life. Our special witness comes through personal spiritual renewal and service to others. We are called to reach out to the un-churched, and to welcome home those who have strayed. To one and all we say, "Come and See!"
