Passing of Charbel El Khoury

Dear Parishioners of OLOP:

We received the sad news that Charbel Nehmtallah El Khoury passed away in Lebanon this past week. We extend our condolences to his son Dany from New Bedford, his brothers Michel, Maroun. and Tony of New Bedford, and his many brothers and sisters, nieces, and nephews here in the United States and in Lebanon. A 40 Day Memorial will be announced in the near future. We ask Almighty God to welcome Charbel into His kingdom and may his soul rest in peace. Allah yerhammo.

In Christ,
Fr. Vincent
