Memory Eternal!

We are very sad to report that our dearly beloved friend and former president Ioannis Papagiannidis has died. 

The whole family went down with COVID and came through it but poor Ioannis was not taking in enough Oxygen to keep his organs alive and died in intensive care.  

Please pray for his wife Euphemia, their children Thomas, Giorgios, Panayiotis, Demetrios and Anna-Katerina. There will be a special collection for the family on Sunday. If you cannot be at church this Sunday you may give online here: https://www.paypal.com/donate/?hosted_button_id=NQE2MDNPN97QW
