Dear Parishioners & Friends of St. Demetrios, Upper Darby,
I pray that you are doing well in these challenging times. This Lent and Holy Week we have had the difficult task of taking up our Cross and following Christ even as we are unable to gather as His Body, the Church. I pray that the Lord strengthen us all to do what is necessary to protect ourselves and those around us and to glorify Him under unprecedented circumstances.
Know that our parish is still running the good race. Our worship life, though changed, has not stopped. Our services are available to all through Live Streaming. We the clergy continue to pray for all of you and for the life of the whole world. If you want, I will Light a Candle for you and your loved ones. Also, our office is still operating remotely. You can always contact us by telephone or email. In cases of pastoral emergency, you can call me directly.
As circumstances continue to change rapidly, we will keep you informed through this website and posts on our Facebook page. I pray that the Lord give peace in these difficult days and look forward to the day when we can see one another again ἀπό κοντά!
+Fr. Gregory Gilbert
