My beloved family in Christ, it is with sadness that I obey our Metropolitan Joseph who has ordered, because of the Corona virus, all services in the Antiochian Archdiocese be canceled until further notice. This could, though I hope and pray not, even include holy week and beyond. This will make Lent especially hard for us; the Presanctified liturgies on Wednesdays are always strengthening for our souls. I ask you to remember each other as I will you before the Lord. May God remove this plague far from us through the prayers of his Holy Mother.
In Christ's love, Fr. Athanacius
