It is with great sadness that we let everyone know about the passing of Fr. Saba Shofany.

Fr. Saba was a priest of our Eparchy. Most recently he was serving Utica parish until he was diagnosed with cancer, which he battled for the past 2 years. He died this morning and his funeral will take place tomorrow, 31 August, in his hometown of Malia in Galilee.

Fr. Saba is survived by his wife Olga, and his daughters Mirna, Melanie, and Mia. Let us offer prayers for all of them.

“With the Saints grant rest, O Christ God, to the soul of your servant, in a place where there is no pain, no grief, no sighing, but only everlasting life.”

May his memory be eternal. الله يرحمه.
