Father Paul and Matushka Mary Shafran Celebrate 76th Anniversaries!

Submitted by Nina Shafran

[Trenton, NJ] - On December 28, 2023, Archpriest Paul Shafran, Pastor Emeritus (retired), St. Vladimir Church in Trenton, NJ, celebrated his 76th anniversary of ordination to the Holy Priesthood. A month earlier, on November 27th, he and Matushka Mary celebrated their 76th wedding anniversary. By God's very special grace, the morning of Sunday, December 31st, Matushka Mary was able to be in church for the first time since her bouts with Covid and other infections, including hospitalizations, over the summer. It was a great joy for her and the parishioners to be reunited for Divine Liturgy and for fellowship afterwards, and a wonderful way to end the year! Rev. Volodymyr (Chaikivskiy), Rector, congratulated them on their remarkable milestones. Father Paul and Matushka Mary are truly grateful for everyone's prayers for their health and for strength to continue in their devotion to Christ's Holy Church. Mnogaya Lyeta!
