COVID-19 Update 8 – Fr. Cyril Gorgy


Beloved Holy Resurrection Church family, Christ is risen!


I miss you and am praying that you are all well and healthy. Wishing you a blessed Thomas Sunday. God willing the churches will soon be open.  In the meantime, the upcoming church services will continue virtually.


I encourage you to continue gathering at your family prayer corner at your home, daily at 8pm and pray together.  If you don’t have a prayer corner I encourage you and your family to identify a space for it.  Choose an icon of Christ or a cross in the center as the main focus.


Below you will find a list of the HRC services.

  • Sunday Sermon will be available this Sunday morning – LA HRC YouTube channel
  • For the 2019 Thomas Sunday service, visit HRC Website’s Media Page.

*Also if you are an elder and need assistance picking up groceries, medication, supplies or helping to set up live-stream of Services, please either email:, or call (310) 882-1733.


Whether we’re at church or at home, may we always celebrate and rejoice in the life-giving mystery of Christ’s death, burial and resurrection.  Missing you very much.


God bless you and protect you,

Fr. Cyril
