MEMORY ETERNAL: Pani-Matka Ann Marie Natishan
It is with a profound depth of sadness and prayer that we inform the clergy and the faithful of our Holy Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA about the falling asleep of a pani-matka Ann Marie Natishan, a wife of the servant of God of blessed memory Fr. Peter Natishan, who served our St. Mary's Ukrainian Orthodox parish in McKees Rocks, PA.
O God of spirits and of all flesh, Who has trampled down death; You have overthrown the devil and have given Life to Your world: now give rest, Lord, to the soul of Your departed servant pani-matka Ann Marie, in a place of light, a place of refreshment and a place of repose, where there is no sickness, sighing nor sorrow. As You are a Good God, Who loves mankind, pardon every sin, which she has committed, whether by word or by deed or by thought, for there is no man who lives and has not sinned. You alone are sinless, Your Righteousness is Eternal and Your Word is Truth. For You are the Resurrection, the Life and the Repose of your newly presented servant pani-matka Ann Marie, Christ our God and we give glory, together with Your Father, Who is Eternal and Your All-Holy, Good and Life-Creating Spirit, now and ever and unto the ages of ages. Amen!
The Council of Bishops of our Holy Church has requested that we include Pani-Matka Ann Marie in our prayers and liturgical commemorations.
