IMPORTANT UPDATE!

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Governor of New Jersey has decreed by Executive Order that we not gather in any groups. We at St. Alexander’s, with the blessing of our ruling bishop, +Metropolitan Hilarion, will adhere to these requirements.

During these difficult times, please be advised that our parish clergy will continue to serve the services, but, unfortunately, behind locked doors. Please be assured that our clergy are commemorating all of your family altar books (pomyaniki) and all of the Lenten Commemoration slips and cards that you submitted at these services.

Please do not come to the church. We absolutely CANNOT allow anyone to attend the services. However, WE WILL LIVESTREAM AS MANY SERVICES AS POSSIBLE. See the special notice on the website for dates and times, and join us in prayer online through our parish Facebook page.

Be assured that we are praying for all the parishioners and friends of St. Alexander’s. If you have a particular need or prayer request or would like to confess and receive Holy Communion, please write to me at batushkaoc@gmail.com, and I will make the necessary arrangements.

Experts are saying that this crisis could last until the end of May or even longer. The inability to have worshipers in church for the services means that the economic welfare of the parish is being severely hurt. Some of our parishioners and friends have already responded to our appeal and have generously donated to the parish, for which we are extremely grateful. Please continue to support the parish with your donations.

Every monetary offering – big or small – is vital.

Here’s how you can support your parish:

Donate securely online via PayPal. CLICK HERE!

Donate by check. Checks should be made out to St. Alexander Nevsky Church and sent to the following address:
St. Alexander Nevsky Church – 200 Alexander Avenue Howell, NJ 07731

Please be assured of my humble prayers for all of you that God keeps you and your families safe and well. Please use this time at home with your family to increase your prayer and strengthen your spiritual life.

With love in Christ,
Fr. Serge Lukianov
Rector
