We strongly request the resumption of Divine Liturgy & Vigil without restriction.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!

We Orthodox Christian lay people desire to attend all Orthodox services regardless of the local & State restrictions imposed upon the Church, keeping with the Orthodox Ethos and Tradition of the Church. We strongly oppose the fencing off of Icons, the mandatory use of masks, and capacity restrictions. Sign up sheets are not necessary. Enough is enough.

We understand that many parishes comply due to the threat of fines and punishment from local authorities. We understand and sympathize. However, seeing that the Constitution of the United States and its 1st Amendment guarantee our right to worship, and this has been upheld by the Supreme Court. We believe it is time to stand up, confess the faith and resist the unjust laws.

We will offer our financial and moral support to parishes that keep and maintain the Orthodox Tradition, remain open without restriction, and provide full access to the life of the Church during this time of crisis, when we need it most. On the other hand, we cannot continue to pledge our support and tithe and donate to parishes that continue to operate under these novel restrictions, which are indeed, contrary to the Lord’s will, commandments, and Holy Tradition.

We also entreat our bishops and priests to stand up and push back. We ask that our Orthodox Dioceses file lawsuits against the local authorities. We also request that our Bishops vocally object to mandatory vaccines and travel restrictions for those who refuse to be vaccinated. Besides the fact that several of the COVID-19 vaccines were created using aborted baby cell lines, it is now clear that new, unprecedented technology will be utilized which may be very harmful to human beings. These and other factors make it difficult for conscientious Orthodox Christians to accept the new vaccine.
