Today, after Divine Liturgy at St. Paul Chapel in the headquarters of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, Bishop Athenagoras of Nazianzos humbly prayed a memorial service for Elder Ephraim of Philotheou & Arizona of blessed memory, who departed in the Lord three years ago.
Elder Ephraim’s contribution to the Greek Orthodox Church across America is immeasurable. His legacy of humility, love and unwavering faith lives on in his monasteries, which are oases for monastics and Orthodox Christians worldwide.
On Saturday, December 17, 2022, Archbishop Elpidophoros of America will preside over the Divine Liturgy and memorial service at the graveside of Elder Ephraim at the Holy Monastery of Saint Anthony’s in Florence, Arizona.
