Parishioners are encouraged to recite the Nicene Creed together on pages 18-19 of the Divine Liturgy Book, as well as the Confession on page 48 in preparation for receiving Holy Communion.

Please refrain from entering the sanctuary during the: Lections, Nicene Creed, Chalice Procession, singing of the Hayr Mer (Lord's Prayer), Der Voghormya (Lord have mercy), reading of Confession, Holy Communion and Sermon. Once you have entered the sanctuary, kindly remain until the conclusion of the service.
