Dear in the Lord parishioners and friends.

On behalf of my mother, Mat. Irina, my brothers, and our entire family, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude for your prayers and support at the repose of our beloved Fr. Valery. The outpouring of condolences from all over the world and the hundreds of you who attended the funeral are a testament to the grace-filled way in which he touched the lives of so many people.

At this time of great emotion, I would like to remind you of the advice that Fr. Valery himself often gave to those mourning the loss of a loved one. Two simple words: "Keep going!" And can't you just hear him exhorting us to be joyful and to not give in to sadness or, even worse, despondency?!

How blessed we are to have his books and to have heard his many sermons! For this, let us be grateful to God! His wisdom and inspiration will guide all of us on our path to salvation!

My dear ones, God has blessed the clergy of this parish to be your leaders. But we can't do it without your support. We must all come together as a family - worship as a family and work together for this parish and for each other. Many challenges lie ahead for each of us and for our parish. But let us stay strong in our Faith, pray together and always remember "the one thing needful"! In this, we will find great joy in the Lord and the path to eternal life.

With love in Christ,

Fr. Serge
