Blessing Russian Orthodox Graves (Memorial Day 2021)

Christ is risen trampling down death by death and upon those in the tomb bestowing life!

  It was a great joy to bless and pray at the graves of our loved and never forgotten Russian Orthodox faithful interred at Floyd Cemetery in Sioux City. May their souls and all the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace and may light perpetual shine upon them. If anyone viewing this have relatives or loved ones who died in the Russian Orthodox Church buried anywhere in this tri-state area and would like their graves blessed, please contact me and I will be happy to do so.

God bless you, Fr. Kevin
