It is with a profound depth of sadness and prayer that the Consistory Office of Public Relations of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA prayerfully announces that the servant of God, Protodeacon Sviatoslav Nowytski (of Saint Katherine Ukrainian Orthodox parish in Minneapolis, NM) has reposed in Christ - born to eternal life - on November 28, 2019. May his memory be eternal!
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 Protodeacon Sviatoslav, 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 he 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, Protodeacon Sviatoslav, 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!
His Eminence Metropolitan Antony has requested that we include Protodeacon Sviatoslav in our prayers and liturgical commemorations.
