June 20th ♱ Fourth Sunday of the Apostles | Father's Day

Saturday, June 20, 2020

Beloved Faithful,

The Celebration of the Divine Liturgy of Holy Qurbana for the Fourth Sunday of the Apostles will be celebrated by Rev. Fr. Qasha Yoshia Oraha on Sunday, June 21st at 9:00am PST and live streamed on Facebook.

This weeks readings,

Lection 1: Deuteronomy 1:16-33

Lection 2: Isaiah 1:10-20

Apostle: 1 Corinthians 9:13-end

Gospel: Luke 6:12-46

For those of you who wish to receive Bookhra to distribute to your families, we will continue to offer the distribution after the completion of Raza Qadisha.

A few weeks ago we were granted permission to open our churches to the public with some restrictions and limitations. Below are a few of the guidelines:

  • Parishioners/visitors must wash their hands and/or apply hand sanitizer prior to entering the church foyer/lobby. Multiple sanitizing stations will also be available throughout the church.

  • Every other pew will be blocked off to ensure we are practicing social distancing. Each open pew will seat 3 people unless you attend with your immediate family. Immediate family members will be able to sit together in 1 pew.

  • Only 100 people will be allowed inside the church at a time. Once parishioners begin to exit after receiving Holy Communion, Ushers will allow additional parishioners to enter for Holy Communion.

  • Absolutely no congregating inside or outside of the premises. If you choose to wait for the conclusion of Raza you must wait in your vehicle.

  • Masks are optional but recommended.

  • Please follow markings and keep distance while in line for Holy Communion

  • Borrowed head scarves will not be made available, please ensure to bring your own head scarves.


Also for the fist time since the Coronavirus Outbreak, The Ladies Auxiliary will be preparing breakfast for fellowship in the hall after Raza Qadisha.


We would also like to wish our fathers a Happy Father's Day! May God bless those who are with us and may God rest the souls of those who have departed.


May the Blessings of Mar Zaia the Blessed be upon you all!
