I perjetshem kujtimi! Prifteresha Elisabeth (Lisa) Bouteneff

St. George is extremely saddened to learn of the repose of Prifteresha Elisabeth (Lisa) Bouteneff, beloved wife of Fr. Sergei Bouteneff, on Saturday, November 25th.  Their ministry together faithfully served our parish of Saint George beginning in 1989 for 21 years, and most recently over the past 5 years in their retirement, filling in during our parish priest vacancy.

We extend our deepest condolences to the Bouteneff family. Click onto the following link to view an In MemoriamMay her memory be eternal! I përjetshëm kujtimi!


Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is with sadness yet with hope in the Resurrection that we announce the falling asleep in the Lord of the Very Reverend Protopresbyter Arthur E. Liolin.  Fr. Arthur passed away peacefully on September 28 surrounded by his loving family, having received the sacraments of Holy Unction and Holy Communion the day prior.

Father was born on June 19, 1943 in New York City.  Ordained a priest in September of 1970, he served as pastor and rector of St. George Albanian Orthodox Cathedral for over fifty years, offering his skills, his diligence, and his love as chancellor of the Albanian Orthodox Archdiocese in America for most of these five decades.  Through all the years of his service, he was a faithful pastor, priest, teacher, and preacher of Christ’s Holy Gospel to countless faithful, not only those of St. George Cathedral, but to the faithful of every community of this archdiocese, to those pining for freedom from within the borders of a captive Albania, and to a new generation of Albanian Christians in Shqipëria and as immigrants here in America.  For the many clergy who serve and have served the Albanian Archdiocese, he was a leader, a brother, a fellow faithful servant in the trenches of ministry; he remains an inspiration. 

We take confidence now even in our grief in the words of our Savior Christ, Who greets those who so multiply their talents in faith, saying “Well done good and faithful servant… enter into the joy of your Lord!” (Matthew 25:23)

In your kindness, please remember Priftëresha Margaret and the whole Liolin family in your prayers at this time and offer petitions of thanksgiving and memory for our father, the ever-memorable Protopresbyter Arthur.

May his memory be eternal! I përjetshëm kujtimi!
