Sts. Joachim and Anna Orthodox Church
San Antonio, Texas
ROCOR
Welcome!

Beloved in Christ,

 

As posted here below, Archbishop Peter has now directed that services are now to be executed solely by the parish clergy and only as many servers and/or readers and chanters as are absolutely necessary. Please take a few moments to read what he has written.

This means that, as of this time, access to services at Sts. Joachim and Anna is closed. Our next service will be Divine Liturgy this coming Sunday at which only I and a small a few designated individuals will serve. I will make arrangements to live-stream services until we are able to open to all again. 

Although this is  heartbreaking, remember that we are making this sacrifice for the sake not only of our own welfare but for that of our fellow human beings--all created in the image and likeness of God--around the state, country and ultimately the world.

"Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving." Colossians 4:2

Yours faithfully in Christ,

Fr. Christopher
