Dear faithful parishioners of St. Jude Melkite Greek Catholic Church:

To conform with the CDC (Centers for Disease Control – US Government) and Miami Dade County emergency orders to combat Coronavirus, this coming Palm Sunday, the Church will be totally closed during the Divine Liturgy.

Father Ezzat will celebrate and record the Liturgy behind closed doors in three languages (English, Arabic and Spanish). The video will be posted on our Facebook page at 11:30am for all of us to join in prayer as a community of faith.

During the rest of the day the Church will be open for individual prayer following the recommended precautions and keeping appropriate social distancing.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation to reduce risks and to protect one another.

May God bless each and all of us.

March 27, 2020 — Akathist to the Theotokos
