Covid-19 Protection Framework at the Greek Orthodox Community of Wellington

The Annunciation of the Virgin Mary

The committee of the Greek Orthodox Community has been working to apply the new Covid Protection Framework at our premises, whilst also meeting the needs of our community. Please refer to the link below with regards to the communications letter in English and Greek for more detailed information regarding how we plan to apply the above.

In summary, with the Wellington region now in ‘Orange’ the weekly Church services at our Cathedral of The Annunciation of the Virgin Mary will be affected as per below.

Understanding that a number of people may have not issued their vaccine passports yet and in order to allow time for all parishioners to obtain these, the Church Services on Sunday 5 December and Sunday 12 December will not require a vaccine pass however, attendee numbers will be limited to no more than 50 people, with social distancing.  Please do not sit in the seats marked “please do not sit here” unless you are sitting with someone in your family.  Masks should also be worn.

After this date we expect most services will require a vaccine pass.

St Andrews

The Holy Metropolis has advised that services held at St Andrews will not require a vaccine pass but the number of people that will be able to attend a service will be limited, social distancing will need to be maintained and other measures will need to be followed.

Having the Health and Safety of our Community members as one of our highest priorities, the Committee will continue to observe the updates and apply the Covid Protection Framework, communicating frequently with our members.

We would like to thank you for your understanding, support, and patience while we introduce these new requirements.
