Our Dear parishioners!
Once again recent circumstances compel us to write that which is so difficult for us. We understand and share your feelings regarding being as close to the church as possible. We must this time use more forceful language to ask that you do not congregate around the church premises! We cannot let anybody into the building and will not make any sort of exceptions.
This may cause dissatisfaction and suspicion of those who live next to our cathedral, and we could be accused of violating the quarantine rules established by the city authorities. As a result, the police could deprive us of the right to worship in the church, even in the current setup (no more than two people).
Ask yourself the question, “do I wish to be the cause of our church being closed off depriving Paschal services for all?”. We are most sure that your answer will be no.
