By the grace of God, Archpriest Paul Shafran (Pastor Emeritus, retired – Trenton, NJ) reached his 99th milestone birthday July 2, 2021. He was blessed to serve Divine Liturgy (shown in photo) on Sunday, July 4th, with Fr. Volodymyr Chaikivskiy (Rector of Saint Vladimir's Church, Trenton, NJ), after which Fr. Volodymyr thanked him for all he has done for the Church and intoned “Many Years!” Parishioners then gathered in the parish social hall for celebratory cake – a welcome change from last year’s covid-related lock-down. The prior day, Fr. Paul celebrated with family. We extend our warm congratulations, gratitude, and “Mnogaya L’yeta” to Fr. Paul!
