Raisa Eaton - Memory Eternal

 

Former long time parishoner Rose Eaton Fell Asleep in the Lord recently.  She and her husband Richard were both dedicated, pious and loyal members of our early parish community -- helping to develop our faith and presence in the South Shore area.  Rose and Dick were inseperable and their love was an example for us all.  They moved to Florida many years ago and were active in Saint Marks Orthodox Church in Bradenton.  More information will be posted as it is available.

May her Memory be Eternal. - Please keep their family in your prayers.

father Antoni in need of prayers

Father Antoni is recovering from back surgery and is in a great deal of pain.  Father led our parish many years ago and has since retired.  He and his wife Matushka Beverly are very close and they need our prayers at this difficult time.
