PROCEDURES

Members of the parish are asked to sign-up on the link provided in the above post if they would like to attend the Vespers and/or Liturgy (limited to 30 people the church and 20 people in the hall and please sign up all family members who are attending including children). If you are not a member of the parish, please contact Fr. Eric to check on availability. If you would like to receive communion after Liturgy on Sunday, please email Fr. Eric (unlimited). He will NOT email attendees unless there is an issue. 

Please note that we have opened the church hall for services so any overflow of 20 adults will go to the church hall to watch the services via live-stream. The overflow will be allowed to receive communion. Anyone in the church hall for services will have priority to be in the church for the next service. The posted rules on attendance still apply.

Donations for Soles4Souls

Soles4Souls distributes gently used shoes and clothing and provides business training to entrepreneurs in developing countries, providing them with a way to generate income and their communities access to affordable footwear. Due to Covid, it is not possible right now to hold a drive at church. However, there are 2 ways individuals can donate on their own. 
 
1) Shoes only (https://soles4souls.org/give-shoes): There is a DSW in the Poughkeepsie Galleria (845-298-1300) but if that's not convenient put in your zip code to find a participating DSW near you. You might want to call your store first regarding dropoff specifics. The Poughkeepsie Galleria store ask that you bring them in a plastic bag. Tell the cashier if you're a member of their loyalty program - they will give you awards points for the donation.. 
 
2) Shoes and clothing (https://www.zappos.com/e/soles-4-souls): the Zappos for Good program provides free shipping of up to 50 lbs. Print out a mailing label and drop off the box at your local UPS facility.
