Diaconessa Karen Casmus, the wife of Deacon Stephen, from Our Lady of Wisdom Italo-Greek parish in Las Vegas reposed in the Lord a few days ago. Please remember her and Deacon Stephen in your prayers.
Lord give rest to the soul of your handmaiden, Diaconessa Karen, in a place of light and love, where there is neither tears nor sighing, but only life everlasting. May her memory be eternal.
Prayers for the consolation of Deacon Stephen and all who loved her, that they be comforted by the prayerful expectation of being reunited with her in heaven.
"One day all our ethnic traits ... will have disappeared. Time itself is seeing to this. And so we can not think of our communities as ethnic parishes, ... unless we wish to assure the death of our community."
