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.

Our sister in Christ has fallen asleep in the Lord.

Patricia ( Patti ) Cook Johnson, age 62, of Bridgeport, wife of the late Travis Johnson, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, September 6, 2017 after a brief illness. Patti was born in Bridgeport on Valentine's Day, February 14, 1955 in Bridgeport and had lived in Hawaii and Kentucky for several years with her husband Travis until his untimely passing and then moved back to Bridgeport 20 years ago. She had worked as an office manager for Dr. Edwin Cook DDS for many years and most recently for the Chico's Clothing Store.

 

She was a lifelong and dedicated member of St. Dimitrie Orthodox Church, in her youth she belonged to the Macaroy Youth Group, sang in the Church choir and later was the assistant Treasurer for the St. Dimitrie Parish Council and for several years was the Co-Chairperson of the Church Festival. Patti enjoyed shopping and most of all the times that she spent with her family.

 

A devoted and loving daughter, sister, aunt, niece and friend, Patti will be remembered for caring for others above herself. She will be sadly missed by all that knew her. She is survived by her mother, Gina and also leaves behind her brothers, Theodore J. Cook Jr and his wife Elizabeth and Donald Thomas Cook, her uncle Fr. George Coca and his wife Mariana, special cousins Steve and Dean Coca and Anne Nastu as well as nieces Victoria DeNitto, Bethany Fuscaldo and great niece, Tory. In addition to her husband Travis, Patti was recently predeceased by her father, T. John Cook, Sr., a brother Robert Cook and her aunt Flora Pittu; as well as several aunts and uncles
