Updated July 29, 2020


Dear Christos Members,


We finally have great news indicating that we begin to return to in-person worship on Sundays. Also, switching to holy communion service starting from Sunday, August 2nd, 2020. While we enjoy this news, and it is very important for us to gather again in prayer, please understand that we must exercise caution, and the most vulnerable should not be attending Mass during this time. 


All other prayer meetings, organization meetings, and activities remain in the zoom conference call. All Sunday holy communion services will be in Malayalam led by Rev. Anish Thomas Thomas, except on the 3rd Sunday service. Rev. Thomas K Mathew will lead this service in English. 

As we all come back together in worship and receive the holy communion, we are required to comply with PA state and local guidelines and protocols. 

Here are a few guidelines and reminders to help keep everyone safe…
 Must follow Christos MTC's health and safety compliance with PA State requirements for churches. https://www.phila.gov/media/20200529131928/Guidelines-for-Religious-Institutions.pdf
 Online sign-up (RSVP) is mandatory for attending In-person holy communion service. Sign-up sheets can be accessible through https://bit.ly/0802020 (Call me @ 267-250-5383 if you have to need any assistance)
We are inviting all families of Church account numbers 1- 20 to attend in-person holy communion service this Sunday (08-02-2020). Tentative schedules, as shown in the table below.
 As per the State COVID-19 guideline, limit indoor attendance to 25 people Maximum. So RSVP is based on a first-come, first-served basis.
 Sign-Up deadline on every Friday at 10:00 pm for that week.
 Live streaming also available for those who remain at home and continue worshiping with us online: https://www.christosmarthoma.org/video-gallery or  https://www.sumodjacobphotography.com/Live
 If you are not feeling well or are experiencing symptoms of illness, please remain at home.
 Must bring a mask and wear it the entire time on the Christos MTC campus.
 No shaking hands or physical touch. Wave “hi” from a safe social distance
 Offer holy communion in a safe distance and with necessary precautions
 To prevent cross-transmission, we will not pass items like offering plates. Your offertory and anniversary offerings may be made through check/cash and placed in a box at the front of the Sanctuary.
 Seats will be socially-distanced. Families living in the same household must sit together.
 Hand Sanitizers will be available throughout the building
 No social hour or Coffee time after the service.

I pray that you and your loved ones remain safe. Hope to see you all soon. 

Prayers
