THE FALLING ASLEEP IN THE LORD OF FATHER JOHN TAVLARIDES

Dearest Parishioner and Friend,

With a heavy heart I inform you that Saint Sophia Cathedral’s spiritual father, Father John Tavlarides, whose priestly ministry to the people of God and the Great Church of Christ spanned six decades, passed from us Monday evening, September 21, at 11:07 PM. We commend his immortal soul to Christ God, Whom he so fervently loved, and so dedicatedly served, throughout his long and exemplary priesthood.

Funeral arrangements will be forthcoming as soon as they have been finalized with the Office of the Archbishop.

We ask you to keep Presbytera Harriett and the family in your most constant prayer, and on the day of the funeral to join us in honoring Father John.

“For it is declared about him, ‘You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.’” (Hebrews 7:17)

Father Steve
