So from what I am understanding is that once local says we can open and we have filled out the the re-opening plan and approved by our Vicar and no issues with state plans its ok to open with all these check points in place. Thank you.
St George
01:55:18
If doors are left open, how do we control people/visitors from wandering in beyond the required capacity requirements?
John Kiladis
01:56:06
can the hand sanitizer be shipped to Hawaii
petersnarskis
01:56:09
I know we need to wear masks but will we need full PPE for people cleaning the church.
Nick P

Our municipality (Anchorage) has asked us to develop a protocol to safely distribute sacrament. This guide from the metropolis asks us to follow municipal guidelines under 1) regulatory compliance. While Doctrinally communion cannot transmit illness, if our church develops a cluster of COVID-19 cases for another unlucky reason, I am sure our practice of using a common spoon without cleaning it will be scrutinized and likely blamed as to an external secular scientific observer this is understandably a very high risk endeavor. The church could be formally shut down indefinitely by our public health department. How do we balance church doctrine with local rule of law? This is a very delicate balance that the Church will walk as we reopen our buildings.

John Kiladis
02:04:26
how do you know who is your parish vicar
Bill Koukourikos
02:04:30
is the use of a single spoon doctrinal or traditional?
Michelle Grafos
02:04:31
Could the Metropolis please look into bulk orders that we can then purchase from as far as supplies. When we can open, it is going to be hard as a small church to source these necessary materials. Any and all help or pre purchase would be super helpful I think. Masks, hand sanitizer, maybe a thermometer
Michelle Grafos
02:05:56
And thank you for all of your help
Fr. Jerry Markopoulos
02:05:57
If a church develops a cluster of COVID-19 cases, it should shut itself down. The document put out today by the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops makes mention of this
Bill Koukourikos
02:06:55
can we not use one plastic spoon per person?
Fr. Michael Sitaras
02:07:20
Could we respectfully discuss how we will safely distribute Holy Communion?What will happen if the spoon accidentally touches the inside of the mouth or if the breath gets on the spoon.
St George
02:09:07
How do we say that the Sacraments -- Christ, Who is our Heavenly Physician-- are for the health of soul and body, and, at the same time, imply that the Sacrament carries disease?
frjohn
02:10:24
For the sake of time, I believe this is an appropriate conversation for His Eminence to have with his priests, since the priests are the ones administering the Eucharist.
Fr. Ninos Oshaana
02:12:17
The Body and Blood of Jesus Christ is holy and sanctifies everything it touches, including the spoon. To say the spoon that is repeatedly submerged into the Holy Cup can carry a disease is blasphemy.
Niko
02:12:17
Will this meeting format continue even after churches have opened? I hope so.
Stephen Tibbs
02:12:56
Yes
Niko
02:13:03
Great to hear
John Kiladis
02:13:26
thank you.
Nick P
02:14:03
I don't think sanitizing the spoon or using plastic spoons has to acknowledge that holy communion transmits disease. It can simply be an accommodation of the Church to public health guidelines to avoid scrutiny. There will be many more opportunities to spread illness as we gather, but an outside secular observer will hone right in on communion if we continue to use a common spoon.

Thank you everyone for your service! May we be guided by the love for and faith in our Crucified and Risen Lord . . . Who is with us until the close of the ages.
Niko
