Fr. Panteleimon Papadopoulos on the Passing of His Grandmother

NEW YORK – Fr. Panteleimon Papadopoulos, presiding priest of the Church of the Holy Resurrection in Brookville, NY, posted on social media about the passing of his beloved grandmother Parthena on January 17.

He posted, “May the Lord grant my beloved yiayia Parthena a blessed repose among the righteous. She passed today, January 17, 2021… she was born in March of 1929. For the clergy who may see this post please commemorate her in the Proskomidi.”

Comments and reactions on Facebook included many condolences and prayers from those who knew her as a cherished presence in the family and those who perhaps had never met her, but still wished “may her memory be eternal” and offered their deepest sympathies to the family.

Details of the funeral arrangements were not available at press time.

Fr. Papadopoulos became the presiding priest at Holy Resurrection on November 3, 2019.

Papadopoulos attended Norwalk High School and finished his undergraduate degree at Fairfield University in 1998 while double majoring in Biology and Religious Studies.
