Departed Parishioner
« on: July 16, 2017, 09:20:04 PM »
Please pray for a fellow parishioner who fell asleep in the Lord on Friday.  He was in his 80’s but finally succumbed to cancer.  We never had long conversations, but we had a lot of short ones.  Sometimes he would just give a smile “Hello.”  I will miss him.  He is survived by his wife, kids, and grandchildren.

Memory Eternal!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria
