Pani-Matka Anna Hankevych of Blessed Memory


“I have fought a good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith.

Now there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous judge,

shall give me at that day.” (2Timothy 4:7-8)


It is with a profound depth of sadness and prayer that we inform the clergy and the faithful of our Holy Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA about the falling asleep of a servant of God - Pani-Matka Anna Hankevych, of St. Vladimir Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral in Parma, OH. Pani-matka Anna of blessed memory was a wife of Protopresbyter Stephen Hankevych, who served our St. Vladimir Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral in Parma, OH until his repose in the Lord.

O God of spirits and of all flesh, Who has trampled down death; You have overthrown the devil and have given Life to Your world: now give rest, Lord, to the soul of Your departed servant pani-matka Anna, in a place of light, a place of refreshment and a place of repose, where there is no sickness, sighing nor sorrow. As You are a Good God, Who loves mankind, pardon every sin, which she has committed, whether by word or by deed or by thought, for there is no man who lives and has not sinned. You alone are sinless, Your Righteousness is Eternal and Your Word is Truth. For You are the Resurrection, the Life and the Repose of your newly presented servant pani-matka Anna, Christ our God and we give glory, together with Your Father, Who is Eternal and Your All-Holy, Good and Life-Creating Spirit, now and ever and unto the ages of ages. Amen!

We shall keep you posted on the funeral arrangements, once the information becomes available.
