You can call our office to register or click here to complete the registration form.  We ask that you read the Worship Guidelines and What to Expect prior to registering.

Let us go into the House of the Lord!  Our attendance numbers for Sunday Liturgies at the start of the new year has averaged between 90-100 and are now increasing. We continue to put the safety of our clergy, staff and parishioners as our top priority. Pew Bulletins and Liturgy Books are now available. Just a few Sunday Liturgy Reminders:

Arrival and Check In

Liturgy begins promptly at 9:30 a.m., with Orthros at 8:15 a.m.  We ask that you arrive early or on time, as per Metropolis guidelines, we are required to check in everyone entering the Cathedral.  Your timely arrival helps our volunteers and ushers provide a safe and orderly process. We are unable to assure your entry past 9:45 a.m., regardless of registration status.  We appreciate and thank you for your understanding and compliance.


Two sets of doors will be used to exit the House of Worship. Those sitting on the foyer side will exit through the side aisle and go through the Spanos Foyer to exit. Those sitting on the Kingcrest Parkway side will exit through the side aisle and go to the doors leading outside toward the street. There will be no exiting through the narthtex. Antidoron in plastic bags will be available at both exits. Social distancing must be maintained when exiting.


Although we enjoy socializing after services, current circumstances require that we should depart the premises after services. This includes the parking lot and exterior grounds. Social distancing should be observed as you return to your cars. There should be no congregating in the Spanos Foyer.

We thank our Covid careful virtual parishioners for their attendance on Sunday as well. The time is coming when we can all worship together again. 

Thank you for your cooperation, understanding and support!
