Divine Liturgy Reservation Form


  • Please arrive by 10:00am.  If you do not arrive by 10:30am your reservation will be forfeited to accommodate walk-ins.
  • Park your vehicle in the church parking lot.
  • Follow all social distance signs, ground markings, and verbal instructions from the Parish Council. 
  • Walk up to the sidewalk with your mask on, following social distancing protocol (6 feet of space between other parishioners or a family group).
  • 2 Parish Council members will greet you by the church entrance.  They will check to make sure that your family is on the registration list.  If you are not on the registration list, you cannot enter the church as we must abide by NYS law for the number of individuals permitted in the church at this time.
  • If you wish to light a yellow candle, a Parish Council member will hand a candle to you.  If you wish to light a red 7-day candle, a Parish Council member will hold the candle while you light it and will then place it in front of the icon requested.  Please note that  you must bring exact change to place in the Donation Box.
  • If you would like to venerate an icon, please bow your head and pray in front of the icon.  Please do not kiss the icon.
  • A Parish Council member will usher you/your family to a pew
  • If you are receiving Holy Communion, follow the Parish Council usher's instructions and the social distance markings laid out on the church floor to show you where to stand and wait until it is your turn. Families are permitted to stand together and will be communed together.  Upon approaching the chalice, do not touch the cloth.  After receiving communion, please go back to your pews following the direction of the arrows on the floor.
  • Trays will not be passed out at the end of liturgy.  Instead, collection trays will be placed in front of the altar (on each side) for those who wish to make a donation at the end of Liturgy when you are ushered to receive antidoron from Father John.
  • After exiting the church, parishioners should return directly to their vehicle in the parking lot without congregating or lingering, and exit the church grounds.
  • If you have any questions, please contact our church office at 631-261-7272.
If you reserve a spot and cannot come to Liturgy, please send an email to ecaraaa@gmail.com or

SATURDAY DIVINE LITURGY WILL BE AVAILABLE BEGINNING 11/7/2020 to enable more parishioners to come to church each week as Sunday School is beginning on 11/1/2020; in order to accommodate as many families as we can, if you don't have children in Sunday School please try to register for Saturday liturgies. 
If there are 0 reservations left for a given Sunday, families with children in Sunday School should send an email to ecaraaa@gmail.com to see if there is space available in the pews reserved for Sunday School.
Walk-ins will continue to be accommodated in the community center until capacity has been reached. 
If space opens up in the church (there are no-shows), then parishioners will be brought into the church. 
Thank you for undertanding.
