Fr. Shafran Celebrates His 102d Birthday Milestone

We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Archpriest Paul Shafran, who reached the ripe old age of 102 on July 2d! By God's grace, he continues to serve in the altar with Father Volodymyr Chaikivskiy, Rector, St. Vladimir Church, Trenton, NJ, as he did on Sunday, June 30th, for the Divine Liturgy. Also co-celebrating that morning were visiting clergy, Rev. Bohdan Chaikivskiy and Rev. Dn. Mark Bohush (both currently attached at St. Athanasius Chapel, Bronxville, NY). Father Paul was feted afterward by parishioners, his daughters, son-in-law, and granddaughter at the fellowship hall next door. Although Matushka Mary was unable to attend, she joined family members later that day as the birthday celebration continued at home. Thank you, Father Paul, for your wonderful ministry to the Orthodox Church over these many decades, and may God grant you enduring strength and good health! Mnogaya L'yeta!
