+Sonia Belcher - First Anniversary
« on: February 20, 2009, 01:41:47 AM »
Dear All,
Today is the first anniversary since Sonia Belcher (1976-2008), the Director of Admissions at Hellenic College and Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology passed away.

Sonia was really a wonderful person and it was really an honor and a privilege to know her. May God grant His loyal and faithful servant Sonia an eternal comfort! May God also help her husband Fr. Deacon Nicholas, her son Andrew, Sonia's parents and siblings and all her loved ones.

Jarhad Barham! Kyrie Eleison! Lord, have mercy!

Eternal be her memory!

Sonia was a very special person, and my prayers also go out to her husband and child.
