May her Memory be Eternal

With sadness we announce the repose, in her sleep, of our long time Choir Director, Gina Pittu Cook, on October 18th. She had been homebound for a few years and not able to come to Church. Gina had just recently lost her husband of 68 years, John, in May; their daughter Patricia 40-days ago; and her last sister, Flora, in July. Gina had been our choir director for 60 years and the choir mezzanine had been named in her honor. She had also served as Co–chair of the annual Festivals for many years.

Her funeral will be held Saturday, Oct. 21st in the Church after the visit of the holy icon from Hawaii with Fr. George officiating. Gina was predeceased by her parents, Thomas and Rincea Fatsi Pittu, her son, Robert Steven, brother James Pittu and Margaret, sisters Victoria Chanaca and Bill, Sophie Reimer and John and son-in-law Travis Johnson. She is survived by two sons, Theodore, Jr. and his wife Elizabeth and Donald Cook, a granddaughter Bethany Fuscaldo, and husband Joseph and a great grand-daughter Tory; several nephews and special niece Anne Nastu (Victor) and nephews Steven (Alexandra) and Dean (Sara).

May her memory be eternal with all her dearly departed!

May God Grant Him Many Years

Prayers of gratitude flowed on Sunday, September 17 as we surprised Fr George and Psa Marian with a coffee hour on the fourteenth anniversary of his Ordination to the Priesthood. Parish Council president Bob Nicola commented that "we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Fr George and we wouldn't be the community we are if he wasn't here to lead us."

After a chorus of " God Grant You Many Years, " Ladies President Betsy Cipu presented Psa Marian with a bouquet of flowers.   Fr. George  reminded us "it takes a village and we have to remember to love each other, love the Lord and love this community."  

"The people present are the main support of this parish and don't ever give that up. Bring your children, grandchildren and godchildren. Let this parish countinue when we are gone from here and our decendants take over for us."
La Multi Ani and Good Health to Fr George and Psa Marian from a grateful parish.
