A Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic from the Cathedral Rector

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

By executive order the Governor of New Jersey has prohibited public gatherings. For the health and safety of all and with the blessing of our ruling bishop, +Metropolitan Hilarion, the St. Alexander Nevsky Parish will adhere to these requirements.

Essential clergy will continue to serve behind locked doors. Only essential clergy and choir members are permitted to attend these closed services. We will live-stream services on Facebook Live. We also continue to read commemoration books (pomyaniki) and commemoration slips submitted via our Online Candle Counter. Candles may also be purchased at our Online Candle Counter, and will be lit at the next scheduled service. Live-streaming service dates and times will be posted above on our Homepage.

We encourage all to heed federal warnings, remain at home and protect yourselves against this deadly virus. Unite your family in prayer and support one another spiritually. Be assured that at St. Alexander’s we continue to pray for all of our parishioners and for our extended Orthodox family around the world. If you have any particular needs or prayer requests, or if would like to confess and receive Holy Communion, please contact me directly at batushkaoc@gmail.com.

Experts are predicting that the timeframe of this global crisis will be extensive. As a result, the economic welfare of our beloved parish is at risk. Many have already responded to our appeal and we are profoundly grateful for the outpouring of love and generosity seen in recent weeks. From the bottom of my heart, thank you all! With God’s blessing and with your continued support we remain hopeful.

Please be assured of my humble prayers for you all. May God bless you and keep you and your families safe and well.

With love in Christ,
Fr. Serge Lukianov
Rector
