Fr. Thomas Hopko
Monday, March 9, 2015

Thank you, to each and every one of you, for your ongoing love, prayers, and concern for our dear Father Thomas! He is truly blessed, and is most grateful!

As many of you know, Fr. Thomas has had several serious health concerns over recent years. The most serious medical issue by far is his diagnosis with congestive heart failure (CHF) due to the fact that he has senile systemic amyloidosis. Simply put, the deposits of a protein-like material called amyloid lodge in the heart and cause stiffening and compromised function. Therefore, it cannot work efficiently, and heart failure ensues.

St Raphael Hawaweeny
Friday, February 27, 2015

Pilgrims from across North America gathered at Saint Tikhon’s Monastery, South Canaan, PA, May 28-29, 2000 to celebrate the glorification of the first Orthodox Christian bishop to have been consecrated on North American soil—Saint Raphael Hawaweeny.

Today—February 27, 2015—marks the 100th Anniversary of Saint Raphael’s repose. His many missionary and pastoral journeys across North America to gather Orthodox Christian faithful of Middle Eastern background had taken their toll. He fell ill early in 1915, patiently bearing his infirmities at home. At 12:40 a.m. on February 27, he fell asleep in the Lord.
