It is with a heavy heart that the parish council of All Saints of America Orthodox Mission announces that our priest, Father Michael, died in the morning on Wednesday, August 18.
The family has asked that in lieu of flowers, all gifts in Father Michael’s memory be made to All Saints of America Orthodox Mission. Please note "In Memory of Father Michael" on your check and send to All Saints Orthodox Mission c/o Carolyn Carmack, 6001 Wendron Way, Alexandria, VA 22315-2656.
May the memory of our beloved pastor be eternal.
O Lord of Hosts, You are the consolation of the afflicted, the comfort of those who mourn, and the support of all those who are fainthearted. Comfort, through Your lovingkindness, those who are distressed with weeping for him who has fallen asleep, and heal every pain that weighs on their hearts. Also give rest in Abraham's bosom to Your servant, the Mitred Archpriest Michael, who has fallen asleep in the hope of resurrection unto life eternal. For You are the resurrection and the life and the repose of Your servant, the Mitred Archpriest Michael, O Christ our God, and to You do we ascribe glory, with Your Father Who is everlasting, and Your all-holy and good and life-giving Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
