Our Beloved Protodeacon Sergius fell asleep in the Lord on March 16th, 2022. Fr Sergius joined Saint Matthew in March of 2011, and was raised to the protodiaconate on Holy Saturday, 2017 by His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon. His obituary details a life dedicated to the Orthodox faith. 

We were blessed to have Metropolitan Tikhon with us to serve for the Panikhida. His heartfelt Homily can be viewed here.

Our resident Iconographer Wayne blessed our parish with a new icon of St. Sergius of Radonezh, written in remembrance of Protdeacon Sergius. Fr. Constantine presented the icon to the parish after liturgy on March 27th. The scroll is inscribed with "through the fiery trial the gold is revealed"

Memory Eternal!
