Memory Eternal: + Protodeacon John Eby

The deepest sympathies of the clergy and faithful of the Diocese are expressed to the family and loved ones of the newly-departed + Protodeacon John Eby -- particularly, to the parish family of Holy Trinity Church, Yonkers NY, and to the community of St. Vladimir's Seminary.

Protodeacon John served the Yonkers parish faithfully for four decades, first as a devoted layman and then, for the past 22 years, as their parish deacon, retiring recently from active diaconal service. His passing into eternity is a great loss to the many parishioners touched by his ministry, and also to the countless students, faculty, and customers whom he served as Assistant Manager of Saint Vladimir's Seminary Bookstore.

Viewing hours will be on Friday, February 5, from 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM at Holy Trinity Orthodox Church, 46 Seymour Street, Yonkers, NY, immediately followed by a Panikhida at 7:30 PM. Divine Liturgy will be held on Saturday, February 6, at 10:00 AM at Holy Trinity Orthodox Church.

Grant rest eternal in blessed repose with the Saints, O Lord, to the soul of Thy newly-departed servant, the ever-to-be-remembered + Protodeacon John, who has fallen asleep in the Lord, and make his memory to be eternal! "Vechnaya Pamyat!"

With love,
Archbishop +Michael
