Our Mission at Holy Transfiguration American Coptic Orthodox Church is to live and preach a life transfigured by our relationship with God through the pure Orthodox faith, fully participating in the life-giving Sacraments, fully immersing ourselves in the life of the Church, and fully striving to imitate the pure and perfect example of Christ.
Plans Moving Forward
The current recommendation by the CDC is that everyone wear a mask indoors in areas of substantial to high transmission.
San Bernardino county recently moved from "Substantial" to "High."
The reason for this new guideline is that the most recent scientific data shows that when they amplified the mRNA of the delta variant from the nasal passages from people who were infected and compared the viral load in those vaccinated with those unvaccinated, it was very similar. What this means is that, although vaccinated individuals are much less likely to get sick from COVID, they are just as likely and able to spread it to others. The virus sits in the nasal passages and that is why the guidelines direct us to wear masks to cover the nose and mouth.
Based on these recommendations and findings, we are asking that all parishioners @ HTC (both vaccinated and unvaccinated) wear masks (to cover both nose and mouth) indoors during ALL services.

"We made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty. For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: 'This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.'" (2 Peter 1:16-17)
