Вічна Пам'ять: Упокоївся Омелян Скочипець – Довголітній член Ради Митрополії УПЦ США
Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
"Blessed is the way you walk today, O soul; a place of rest has been prepared for you."
It is with a profound sense of our own loss - yet in the inextinguishable light of peace and mercy that is the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ - that we inform the faithful of our Holy Metropolia of the passing from this life of the servant of God Emil Skocypec, a long-term member of the Council of Metropolia, Consistory Member, Property Manager and Treasurer of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA as well past president of the Ukrainian Orthodox League.
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 Emil, 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 Emil, 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 the servant of God Emil of blessed memory in our prayers.
Вічна пам'ять! Memory Eternal!
