AND MORE THAN 50 PEOPLE MAY NOW GATHER IN THE ALL SAINTS TEMPLE, WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING.

The facial coverings mandate is no longer in effect for the City of Salina, Kansas.

Individual businesses and organizations may still require face masks be worn by its customers and participants.

(All Saints Orthodox Church welcomes masks, but does not mandate them. The wearing of facial coverings is encouraged for those who are unvaccinated, and as a precaution for those with at-risk health conditions.)

 

THE REPEAL OF THE CITY MASK ORDINANCE ON MAY 17, 2021

On Thursday, May 13, 2021, Kansas rescinded its statewide mask mandate. On the following Monday, May 17, the Salina City Commission repealed the mask ordinance for the City of Salina, Kansas, by a vote of 4 – 0. The repeal officially was not to go into effect until it was published in the newspaper of record, the Salina Journal, then anticipated in the meeting to be later in the week. However, it was first published online on the Salina Journal website on Monday afternoon, May 17, 2021, and this article was updated on the website on Tuesday afternoon, May 18. It appeared in the printed newspapers sometime that same week. 
 

PLEASE NOTE THAT FACE COVERINGS ARE STILL WELCOME  BUT NOT MANDATED, AND SOCIAL DISTANCING BETWEEN INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILY GROUPS IS STILL BEING PRACTICED IN THE TEMPLE AND IN THE FELLOWSHIP HALL.

ABOUT OUR PARISH

After meeting together starting in 1993, All Saints Orthodox Church of Salina was founded in 1994 by a vibrant group of faithful followers of Christ from an area Episcopal church that were seeking the fullness of the apostolic faith under the pastoral guidance of Fr. Chad Hatfield and Fr. Thomas Neustrom.

 

More than 25 years later, our parish family continues to serve as the spiritual home for Orthodox Christians from Salina and the surrounding area, and from beyond Central Kansas. We are under the authority of Bishop Basil Essey, Bishop of the Diocese of Wichita and Mid-America in the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America. 

 

Our family-friendly parish is guided by our presiding priest and dean, Fr. Joseph Longofono of Topeka, Kansas. All are welcome!

The Church of Antioch was established by the Apostles Paul and Barnabas in 42 A.D., with St. Peter serving for the next eight years as its first prelate.

 

The Church of Antioch is one of the five ancient Patriarchates of the Christian Church, along with Alexandria, Constantinople, Jerusalem, and Rome.

 

We are in full communion with our brothers and sisters in various other Orthodox Christian jurisdictions, such as the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and the Orthodox Church in America. 

 

Together, we are working to nurture the Orthodox Christians of this land and to bring America to the ancient Orthodox Christian Faith.

SERVICES

Readers Vespers: Every Saturday of the month when we are without a priest, at 5:00 p.m. in the chapel.

 

Great Vespers: On those Saturdays when a priest is presiding, at 5:00 p.m., Great Vespers or Compline service, preceded by confessions.

Typika Service: All Sunday mornings when we are without a priest, 10-10:30 a.m., followed by Coffee Hour in Fellowship Hall.
