Dear Beloved Brethren,
The heavens rejoice in receiving a beloved priest, Fr. Rewis Magar, who served the altar of St. George’s Coptic Church in Astoria, Queens, NY. He reposed in the Lord last night, Monday, September 8, 2008, and has gone to the paradise of joy, the place out of which grief, sorrow, and groaning have fled away.
The family will be taking condolences 5pm-9pm tonight, Tuesday, September 9, 2008, at the church (38-25 31st Street, Astoria, NY 11101). Tomorrow, September 10, 2008, there will be Vespers and Midnight Praises followed by the Divine Liturgy and Funeral Service on Thursday, September 11, 2008.
We pray that God may repose his soul and grant comfort to his family, children, and to us all. Amen.
