2019-2020 Divine Liturgies in Omaha and Lincoln, NE
Fr. Dcn. Fred Abboud is not available this Saturday. A non-Eucharist Typika celebrated by a lay person is scheduled for Saturday, January 16, at 4 PM at St. Gerald's Chapel in Ralston, NE. Holy Eucharist will not be offered at this Typika.
When a Divine Liturgy or Typika is scheduled, we will be following the guidelines established by the Eparchy of Parma for a liturgical service during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The celebrant will wear a mask when incensing the church and distributing communion.
People attending the liturgical service must wear a mask and follow social distancing rules when inside the chapel.
Do not form a line for holy communion. You should go up individually for communion and remove your mask just before receiving communion.
Holy communion will be distributed by individual spoons for each communicant After a liturgy the spoons will be washed and then boiled for 15 minutes in order to kill any COVID-19 virus.
The church will be cleaned before and after each liturgical service.
We do not have any plans when Divine Liturgy will resume. We will send out an e-mail announcing this in the future.
