Father Efraim of Arizona (1928-2019) has left this world to join his fellowship (Saint Efraim Katounakiotis, Saint Joseph the Caveman, Father Joseph from Vatopedi, Father Haralampos, Father Arsenios). He is at home now in eternal rest with his spiritual father and his Heavenly Father in Heaven. Imagine the joyous welcome he received in Paradise from Christ, Panagia, his mother, Saint Joseph and from all of the Saints!!!

So many “losses” in just a few months! May we, their orphans, meet them through their prayers in Heavens! Memory Eternal!

    Our parish deacon ‘fell asleep’ the Friday after Thanksgiving Day. Now this… So many are being called home.
