TEMPORARY CHURCH CLOSURE

Dear parishioners of the All Saints of Russia church.
For the protection of our parishioners, our clergy and their families from infection with Coronavirus, according with the Colorado Governor’s Executive “Stay in Place” Order D2020-017, and with the blessing of His Eminence, Archbishop Kyrill, our CHURCH is CLOSED completely until at least April 11.
We will communicate to you as soon as the situation changes, but for the time being the following are the updated rules:
1) All scheduled services have been canceled through April 11th and the church buildings will remain closed. Unless there is an emergency situation, please do NOT enter church property even you have keys.
2) At this difficult time, it is a unique opportunity for our parishioners, both single and families, to conduct Sunday and important services in their houses, to really turn their homes into small churches. Please continue to pray at home and watch live services over the Internet:
  a. As our Vladyka Kyrill wrote: “The members of the Faithful are encouraged to increase their prayers by daily reciting an Akathist to the Lord, or the Theotokos, or to our beloved St. John of Shanghai & San Francisco, or to the Saint of their choice, praying for the cessation of this pestilence.” Service to St. John is located here (in English): http://sjmc.sfsobor.com/files/SERVICE_St_John.pdf
  b. When one is unable to attend a Liturgy, an Orthodox Christian may read a Typica (http://sfsobor.com/2020_Typika.pdf) service at home with his family, before icons and a burning candle/vigil lamp. Following the service, holy water and a small piece of prosphora may be received as a blessing.
  c. For live services in Slavonic please connect to the All Saints of Russia Church in Burlingame, CA using the “LiveStream” on this website (or use any TV broadcasts from Russia):

  d. For live services in English use this link provided by the ROCOR Holy Cross monastery in West Virginia:

3) The Saturday general panikhidas will be served by Fr. Boris, but no one is allowed to attend. Please send your donations and commemoration lists through regular mail (to the address below) or via Donate button on our website (www.rocadenver.org) ahead of time - use the Paypal “Note” field to specify the service and names to be commemorated.
4) For any private services, special circumstances, needs, or visitations please contact Fr. Boris as usual.
5) Please continue to support your parish with pledges and donations via the Donate button on our website (www.rocadenver.org) or by sending them via regular mail to All Saints of Russia Church, 3274 East Iliff Avenue Denver, Colorado 80210.
We pray that the All-Merciful Lord will keep you safe from all illness and give you strength at this difficult time.

St. John (Maximovitch): Nothing is Fearful for the Person Whose Hope is in God

Where can I go from Thy Spirit, and where can I escape from Thy presence? If I go up into heaven, Thou art there; if I go down into hades, Thou art present there. If I take up my wings toward the dawn, and make mine abode in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there shall Thy hand guide me, and Thy right hand shall hold me.” (Psalm 138: 7-10)
These divinely inspired words of the Psalmist David should be particularly in our thoughts during these days, when the entire world is literally quaking, and from every direction comes news of all kinds of distress, shocks and calamities.
Before you can concentrate on what is occurring in one country, you are distracted by even more threatening events which have unexpectedly erupted someplace else; and before you can get a grasp on them, yet other news distracts your attention to still some other location, forcing you to lose track of the previous ones, even though they have by no means reached their conclusion. READ THE REST HERE.
