As of 30 June 2021, COVID restrictions on the number of attendees at religious celebrations in British Columbia have been lifted, and we are pleased to be able to welcome all parishioners and visitors to our regular 11AM Saturday morning Divine Liturgy. Masks are optional if you have received both vaccine doses and it is at least 14 days since you received the second dose. Note, however, that due to the age and vulnerability of some of our parishioners we have chosen to retain basic social distancing during the service, and ask that you sit with your family members or household. Communal singing is now permitted. Father Yuriy will continue to administer holy communion using the disposable wooden spoons, and will wear a mask while doing so.
We will continue to live-stream video of Divine Liturgy from Victoria at 10AM on Sunday mornings on our Journal page.
