With the saints give rest O Lord...
Our dear friend Archpriest Michael Storozuk fell asleep in the Lord around 7:00 AM this morning, September 4, 2018, at the hospital in Frisco, TX.
He will be buried at the cemetery at St Paul Orthodox Church in Denison, TX.
The best time for the family and St. Paul's Orthodox Church is to serve the Funeral and Burial of Archpriest Michael on the feast of the Nativity of the Theotokos, which falls on a Saturday this year.
The Funeral will be served on Sept. 8th after the Divine Liturgy about 11:30 AM and the Burial will be at the parish cemetery after the "Last Kiss" with a procession to the graveside.
There will be a Viewing at St. Paul's starting at 4:00pm on Friday. Confessions will start at 5:00 PM with the chanting of the Psalter. Great Vespers with Litia will start at 7:00pm and then a vigil will be kept until the Hours before Divine Liturgy (9:10am) on Saturday morning.
If any of the clergy or other people desire to chant the Psalter during the vigil or during Confessions, please contact Sub-deacon Thomas (Jeff) Davis, who will be coordinating the schedule. His cell is (972) 832-2548.
Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ Monastery
The Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ Monastery is an Orthodox Christian women's monastic community located in Kemp, TX, within the Diocese of the South, Orthodox Church in America. The initial planning for the monastery began in late 2000 with the blessing of His Eminence, Archbishop Dmitri. In 2009, with the blessing of His Beatitude, Metropolitan Jonah, a 13 acre property with an existing house and other buildings was purchased on the feast day of St. Sergius of Radonezh, September 25. The existing house was soon renovated, and a chapel was erected from two former rooms of the house. The chapel was dedicated to St. Nicholas and blessed by His Beatitude on November 28, 2009.
