Dear St. George Parishioners:

The Church Board wanted to send out an update regarding guidelines related to the Corona Virus (COVID-19) and as we previously mentioned, we are taking proactive measures to address the concerns of our faithful in regard to this current pandemic crisis. Our priorities are to protect the health of our parishioners and their families and to minimize the spread of the virus in our Church community.

STARTING JUNE 12th, 2020:
The Church Board has decided to lift the limitation on attending church services, while practicing social distancing. ALL of the faithful will need to follow the following guidelines and procedures outlined below. Additionally, the Church Board will continue to closely monitor this situation and if needed, will implement the limitation of attendance once again. We will continue to Live Stream the Divine Liturgy service’s going forward to allow those who are unable to attend the opportunity to participate from home.

WE ARE REQUESTING YOUR ASSISTANCE:
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms (per the CDC COVID-19 website), PLEASE STAY AT HOME TO NOT SPREAD THIS VIRUS:

  • Fever (anything over 100 degrees F)
  • Cough
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Persistent Pain or Pressure in the Chest
  • New Confusion or Inability to Arouse
  • Bluish Lips or Face
  • Do you have reason to believe you have been exposed?

If  YOU and ALL of your family members do not have any of the symptoms mentioned above and you feel comfortable in attending Divine Liturgy or other church services, the following guidelines will be in place:

  1. For those in weaker health and lower immunity, for your safety, please refrain from coming to church for worship in the coming days and weeks. Please enjoy the Live Stream that is provided.
  2. Previously, we urged faithful, 65 and older, to refrain from attending church, we would now welcome these faithful, recommending them to follow the social distance guidelines outlined below. If you have any special requests, please discuss with the Tutors to see if they can address those appropriately.
  3. Previously, we urged those younger than 12 years old, to refrain from attending church, we would now welcome these young children to join their parents in attending church.
    • HOWEVER, we would like to require parents to keep their children by their side and within their pew. Please help us with this issue.
  4. Enter through the main church doors as all other doors will be locked.
  5. Tutors will provide guidance on where the faithful will sit in the pews to assist with social distancing. Please follow their instructions.
  6. The church hall will be at limited availability:
    • For those that need to use the restroom
    • Only the small hall will be available
    • Several tables, in a social distancing manner, have been set-up with a limited number of chairs, per table
    • Limited bottled/can beverages will be available
    • No food will be served from the kitchen
  7. When addressing the holy icons, please simply make the sign of the cross before the icon, bow your head respectfully and refrain from kissing the icon.
  8. Holy Communion will be offered, however, for those that will be receiving, please assist Father Radomir by properly keeping your mouth open and let Father Radomir “place” the Holy Communion in your mouth without touching the Holy Spoon.
  9. When greeting one another, please refrain from shaking hands, hugging and kissing.
  10. Collection baskets will not be passed, rather please place your donation in the plate/box in the narthex.
  11. Following the conclusion of Divine Liturgy, the cross will not be offered for veneration, the faithful should simply make the sign of the cross, bow their head respectfully and continue to receive the liturgical bread (naphora) from the hands of the celebrant, who will have, once again, thoroughly washed and/or sanitized his hands before distributing the bread.

Although our church is cleaned after every service and event, we have taken the following additional steps to help prevent the spreading of this virus:

  1. The following items in the Church are being wiped regularly with disinfectant wipes:
    o   Doors and push handles
    o   All veneration icons
    o   Center icon stand table top
    o   Light switches
    o   Backs and sides of the pews
    o   Hand railing to the choir loft and in the choir loft
  2. The carpet is vacuumed after every service.
  3. All liturgical handbooks that were located in the pews have been removed at this time and until further notice.  

Reminder: If you wish to receive Holy Confession and or Holy Communion at home, please contact Father Radomir and he will schedule a time to visit with you at your house. Holy Confession can also be performed over the phone due to this crisis. You can call Father Radomir at (224) 717-1689 for confession or even just to chat.

In light of the current situation, we hope and pray that everyone understands and respects these measures.

Ancient Christianity in the KC area, via Serbia
The current church building was constructed in 2006 and is located near College Boulevard and Pflumm Road in Lenexa.

Apostolic Christianity in Serbia (located in Southeast Europe) dates back to the seventh century. Christianity eventually became the state religion, and the Serbian Orthodox Church received ecclesiastical independence in 1219 with the consecration of St. Sava as the nation's archbishop. Orthodox Christianity became the country's primary religion and remains so to this day.

During a wave of immigration to the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries , a Serbian community was established in Kansas City, Kansas. The community constructed a meeting hall, which held occasional services until St. George Church was chartered on April 18, 1906 in a home that was remodeled into a small church building. A more permanent church building and meeting hall was constructed in Kansas City, Kansas at the corner of Bethany and Lowell in 1925. This remained the location of the parish until 2006, when the new St. George church building (pictured above) was consecrated in Lenexa, Kansas. St. George Church continues the tradition of Orthodox Christianity that can be traced from that original Serbian community in Kansas City, to Europe, to the Apostles.

Visitors are welcome at our church services and special events. Contact Father Radomir if you have questions.

St. George Church Iconostasis

One of the first things that strikes a non-Orthodox visitor to an Orthodox church is the prominent place assigned to the Holy Icons. The Iconostasis (Icon-screen) dividing the Altar from the rest of the church is covered with them, while others are placed in prominent places throughout the church building. Sometimes even the walls and ceiling are covered with them in fresco or mosaic form. The Orthodox faithful prostrate themselves before them, kiss them, and burn candles before them. They are censed by the Priest and carried in processions.
