Memory Eternal! + Department Mourns Loss of Fr. Boniface Black

The Department of Sacred Music is deeply saddened by the passing of Fr. Boniface Black. We extend our heartfelt sympathies to Fr. Boniface's family and friends, and especially to Kh. Joyce, a longtime friend and supporter of our department. Khouria taught at the Sacred Music Institute for many years, and her enthusiasm for Byzantine music gave rise to a resurgence in traditional Antiochian-style chant in North America. We pray that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will grant her strength during this difficult time.

May Father Boniface's memory be eternal. Read more information about his life and the schedule of services on the St. Philip Orthodox Church website.
