  • Please keep noise to a minimum. Speak in hushed tones and put mobile phones on silent. Take care not to disturb others.
  • Dress with propriety. Refrain from wearing skimpy or revealing clothing.
  • Photography is allowed for personal use, but please do so unobtrusively and respect the privacy of worshippers.
