On Monday 21 September, the Great Feast of the Nativity of the Mother of God, we learned with sadness of the sudden repose that morning of our oldest parishioner, Tetyana Gerasimovna Silis. Tetyana, a first cousin to Metropolitan Hilarion, was less than one month from her ninety-fourth birthday. Her funeral was served in our church on Saturday 26 September. She was afterwards laid to rest at Point Clare Cemetery. We offer heartfelt condolences to Tetyana’s only child, her daughter Lilija, and to her grandson Leonid. May God grant her rest with the saints, and make her memory to be eternal!
