New Deacon for the Church of St. Anna - Axios!

On the feast of St. Anna (July 25/August 7), Fr. Savvas Papadopoulos was ordained to the diaconate at the church of St. Anna in Roslindale, Boston. It was a jubilant patronal feast for the whole parish, especially for Fr. Savva's family. 

May our Savior grant to the newly-ordain Deacon Savvas, many years of faithful service to the Church. Amen!
