Corona Update

To all:

Glory to Jesus Christ!

As we continue to monitor the state mandates and the conditions in the county, St. Herman's remains OPEN, with the current instructions being:


1) Those attending Divine services are asked to observe social distancing within the confines of the church, including all passageways, the social hall and gathering area, the nave, and any office spaces.  Families that occupy one home are exempt from distancing amongst themselves, but must distance "as a unit" to others.

2)  Those who feel at all ill in any fashion, or who have a fever are asked to refrain from entering the building.

3) Those entering the building will find a hand sanitizing station at the entry to the nave (from the social hall area), and are asked to use the materials there to sanitize before entering the nave.

4)  Those coming to the church for services will be asked to wear a mask while inside the building.  If you do not have a mask, one will be provided by the church.

5)  While masks are required, there are times when a mask may be temporarily removed:

     a) while one is performing as a reader

     b) when one is approaching the chalice

St. Herman's welcomes all who wish to enter and offer worship and prayer.  Under directives from the Assembly of Bishops, we have received instructions that Orthodox faithful are to worship in their own home parishes.  Certainly for those who are traveling, vacationing, or otherwise away from their homes, we hope you'll feel welcome to pray with us.  

Services being conducted in the church on the published schedule are being livestreamed to YouTube at the following address:


We hope you will join us within the walls of the church, but if you are in a high risk group, we pray that you will continue to be served by our on-line offerings, and that you'll be with us in prayer virtually.

Glory forever!

All love in Christ,
Fr. B

This Week's Liturgy's Readings


[2Pet 1:10-19]  Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  For this reason I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things, though you know and are established in the present truth.  Yes, I think it is right, as long as I am in this tent, to stir you up by reminding you, knowing that shortly I must put off my tent, just as our Lord Jesus Christ showed me.  Moreover I will be careful to ensure that you always have a reminder of these things after my decease.  For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty.  For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."  And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.  And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts


[Mat 17:1-9] Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light.  And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him.  Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, "Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, let us make here three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah."  While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!" And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their faces and were greatly afraid.  But Jesus came and touched them and said, "Arise, and do not be afraid."  When they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only. Now as they came down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying, "Tell the vision to no one until the Son of Man is risen from the dead."
