Beloved in Christ,
It is with great regret and extreme sadness that I announce to you the passing of our dear sister in Christ Mary Helen Massad. She fell asleep in the Lord tonight at 6:30. Mary had "suffered many things of many physicians" as we hear in Scripture, and is now committed to the mercy of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, whom she loved most of all. Mary was an example of the Christian woman, and her love and faith have brought joy and peace to so many whose lives hers touched. May her memory be eternal, and may the Lord place her soul where the just repose.
The schedule of Services is as follows:
All Services except for the Burial will be held at our church.
Friday, October 22nd, Trisagion Service at 6 PM, followed by viewing until 9 PM.
Saturday, October 23rd, Funeral Service at 1 PM, followed by a procession to the burial site for the Burial Service at Restland in Coppell, 400 S. Freeport Parkway, 75019. Following the Burial, we will return to the church for the Mercy Meal.
The Family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations should be made to and/or sent to Saints Constantine & Helen Orthodox Church, 3755 Walnut Hill Lane, Dallas, TX 75229, and earmarked "Mary Helen Massad Memorial Fund."
Please join me in prayer as we say goodbye to our dear sister, by saying "Into Thy hands O Lord we commit the soul of Thy handmaiden Mary, do Thou Thyself bless her, have mercy on her, and grant her eternal life. Amen"
May He who is the Giver of life grant you all long life and good health. Your servant in Christ,
Fr. Antony Bahou
