This past Saturday afternoon, Protopresbyter Elias Wen reposed at the age of 110. He may well have been the oldest priest in the entire Russian Church. For the time being, news about his funeral services and a photograph of him can be found on the Diocesan website,  http://www.wadiocese.com/wad.php.

May our Lord remember the beloved Protopresbyter Elias for all eternity!

I probably catch at least a few minutes of the Panakhida tonight, as our choir practice is being delayed due to it.  I wonder if his body will be there yet.  Very interesting that he lived so long.  Memory Eternal.
