CHICAGO, IL [DOM] – On the great feast of Ascension, June 2, the Diocese of the Midwest will be marking the 40th day since the repose of His Eminence Archbishop Paul. To commemorate the occasion, His Grace Bishop Daniel will preside over services at the Diocesan Cathedral, Holy Trinity Cathedral.
Divine Liturgy for the feast of Ascension will begin at 9:30 A.M., and a memorial service will be served later that afternoon at 1:00 P.M. Bishop Daniel will lead the memorial service and be joined by local clergy.
“As we continue to mourn the loss of Archbishop Paul, it is important to remember that we grieve with hope and in prayer. This prayer turns any sorrow or sadness that we feel in our hearts because of this loss into the deep peace we find in Christ’s resurrection,” commented His Grace.
Bishop Daniel is encouraging all of the parishes of the Diocese of the Midwest to hold services and fervently pray for their departed archpastor on the feast of Ascension.
