We have in person services as listed on the calendar (under "Hello! Welcome!") that are limited to the number of individuals/family units who are spaced six feet apart and all (5 years and older) wearing masks. The best services to visit as an inquirer are the evening services, Daily Vespers or Great Vespers. Visitors are certainly welcome, but there is less space on a Sunday Morning.
