Passing of Elie Irani

Dear Parishioners of OLOP:

It is my sad duty to inform you that Elie Irani passed away this past weekend. Our condolences go out to his children Nataliael, Tatiana, Dory, and Daniella, as well as his family here and in Lebanon.

The family will be receiving family and friends for a viewing on Thursday, November 10, at Our Lady of Purgatory Church from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM. Divine Liturgy of the Resurrection will follow at 6:00 PM.

We ask Almighty God to welcome Elie into His kingdom and may his soul rest in peace. Allah yerhammo.

In Christ,
Fr. Vincent
