News!

As of March 17, 2020, St. Herman Church is closed to the public until further notice. All events, programs are cancelled. Any liturgical service that is done will be limited to the bare minimum of clergy, servers, and chanters necessary to carry out the service, but no one else will be allowed to participate in person.

We will continue to pray for the peace of the whole world as well as for the sick and the suffering. We look forward to the time when we will be able to worship God together in person as a full community, and will post a message here on the website when we have more news. May God bless and keep you.
