WORSHIP AND COMMUNITY
21 JUNE, 2020
Under guidance from +Metropolitan Tikhon and Vermont state health guidelines, services are resuming with limited attendance and prudent rules for the safety of all. See below for details.
The Transfiguration of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
On the Mountain You were Transfigured, O Christ God, / and Your disciples beheld Your glory as far as they could see it; / so that when they would behold You crucified, / they would understand that Your suffering was voluntary, / and would proclaim to the world, / that You are truly the Radiance of the Father!
Guidelines for attending services Starting 21 June, 2020
A PRAYER FOR OUR TIME
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen. O God Almighty, Lord of heaven and earth, and of all creation visible and invisible, in your ineffable goodness, look down upon us, your people gathered in your Holy Name. Be our helper and defender in this day of affliction. You know our weakness. You hear our cry in repentance and contrition of heart. O Lord, who loves humankind, deliver us from the impending threat of the Corona Virus. Send your angel to watch over us and protect us. Grant health and recovery to those suffering from the virus. Guide the hands of physicians, and preserve those who are healthy. Enable us to continue to serve our suffering brothers and sisters in peace, that together we may glorify your most honorable and majestic name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages.
