Trisagion and Mnimosyno
We must continue to adhere to the government guidelines which authorized us to have liturgies with a maximum number of 50 persons.10 persons are needed as essential personnel, consisting of the volunteers, members of the Council, the Philoptochos and the Youth, the priest, the sexton and the chanter, all necessary in order to ensure the normal proceedings to take place in applying the government guidelines.
Mnemosyna with kollyva can be held, with the understanding that only next of kin may be present, provided that they arrive before the number of participants reaches the maximum capacity of 40 persons. Make sure to arrive early before the number of 40 is completed if you want to be present at the mnemosyno. No kollyva may be distributed to parishioners in church. You must take the tray of kollyva to your home.
In case that you cannot attend, for a minimal donation of $50, we will light up a Kandili for the departed and Father Lambros will conduct the Trisagio or Mnimosyno service at the end of the divine liturgy. Or you can write the names of the departed in a note, place it in an envelope and place the envelope in the church mailbox or give it to one of the persons at the church on Sunday morning.
At the same time, your donation offering will help sustain the church and its operation during this unprecedented pandemic period.
This initiative is running at the same time as our other initiatives (light a candle and give us the names of your Living or the Departed, or make a general donation) and all initiatives have to be processed separately.
By pressing the link below, when you make your donation, and after choosing PayPal or Credit Card payment, under the amount ( in the Add Note to Seller section), please provide the name or names for the Trisagion or Mnimosyno service.
If you prefer using conventional pstal service you may send your donation by issuing a check to the Greek Orthodox Community of West Island.
