Memory Eternal: Priest Anatoliy Dokhvat of Blessed Memory...
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 Very Rev. Fr. Anatoliy Dokhvat, pastor of Sts Peter and Paul Ukrainian Orthodox parish in Millville, NJ.
Fr. Anatoliy was recently diagnosed with cancer and following service of the Holy Mystery of Unction (served by His Eminence Metropolitan Antony and His Grace Bishop Daniel as well as numerous clergy of the UOC of the USA and from other jurisdictions) began his medical treatments. Throughout the entire medical treatment process Fr. Anatoliy was surrounded by his family members, friends and many parishioners of the parish family.
The Rite of Orthodox Christian Burial of a Priest will be served on Tuesday, October 20, 2015 at 6PM at Sts Peter and Paul Ukrainian Orthodox parish in Millville, NJ with His Eminence Metropolitan Antony and His Grace Bishop Daniel presiding.
On Wednesday morning (October 21, 2015), the physical remains of Fr. Anatoliy will be brought into St. Andrew Ukrainian Orthodox Memorial Church (South Bound Brook, NJ) at 9AM and the Divine Liturgy as well as the continuation of Priest's Funeral Service will be served at 10AM. The internment will follow at St. Andrew Cemetery.

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 priest Anatoliy, 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 he 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 priest Anatoliy, 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!
