HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Father Paul Shafran
Very Reverend Paul Shafran celebrated his 95th birthday on Sunday, 2 July 2017, giving thanks to God for his many blessings which include the ability to continue serving at the altar. Following the Divine Liturgy that morning, the parish of Saint Vladimir in Trenton NJ (where Father Paul is Pastor Emeritus, retired) honored and blessed him with the singing of "Many Years!" A celebration followed in the fellowship hall and a birthday cake was enjoyed by all. The previous day his extended family gathered for an in-home celebration with toasts and photo-trips down memory lane.
