In your charity, please remember in prayer Father Deacon Nicholas Rosov whose 8th anniversary of repose will be 2 days from now, on August 8th.
Deacon Nicholas, served Holy Transfiguration Melkite parish in McLean VA and was the beloved husband of our sister and dear friend, Diaconessa Alicia/Penthaetria.
May the memory of the Lord's faithful servant, the Deacon Nicholas, be eternal and may Alicia and their sons, Stephen and Nathaniel, be blessed and comforted by the love he had for them and the prayerful expectation of reunion with him 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."
