Memory eternal. Such a dear man, and a wonderful pastor. He had visited us only about a month ago. He will most certainly be missed.

Memory eternal!  I missed greeting him the last time he was at our parish and now I truly regret not taking the time to do so.  He truly is a dear man.   Cry

I just got a message about it from a friend - the circumstances were certainly sudden and unexpected.  May the Lord rest his soul with the righteous!

When the OCA faced its the biggest crisis in its existence, Archbishop +JOB stood up for godly behavior and accountability. I pray the OCA's Midwest Diocese finds a worthy successor.
