Вічна Пам'ять: Упокоївся протопресвітер Юрій Гнатко

Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

"Blessed is the way you walk today, O soul; a place of rest has been prepared for you."

It is with a profound sense of our own loss - yet in the inextinguishable light of peace and mercy that is the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ - that we inform the faithful of our Holy Metropolia of the passing from this life of the servant of God Protopresbyter George Hantko, a long-term pastor of St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Orthodox parish in Dixonville, PA and Holy Ascension Ukrainian Orthodox parish in Nanty Glo, PA and the Dean of Pittsburgh Deanery, who recently retired from the active pastoral ministry and celebrated his 89th birthday.

The Funeral services are scheduled as follows:

Thursday, February 17, 2022 - 7:00PM at St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Orthodox Parish in Dixonville, PA 

(visiting hours - 3-7PM)

 

Friday, February 18, 2022 - 10:00AM at St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Orthodox Parish in Dixonville, PA 

(visiting hours - 9-10AM)

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 protopresbyter George, 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 protopresbyter George, 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!

His Eminence Metropolitan Antony has requested that we include Protopresbyter George in our prayers and liturgical commemorations.

Вічна пам'ять!   Memory Eternal!
