Our sympathy in Christ to Christine Stavrou and the entire Stavrou family at the passing of beloved husband and father, Barry Stavrou.
Barry, along with his wife, Christine, have been faithful supporters of The King’s Jubilee, through prayer support, patronage of “Come and See” Icons, and encouragement. Barry reposed peacefully in the Lord yesterday following an heroic struggle with cancer. Barry helped oversee renovations and preservation of St. John Chrysostom Albanian Orthodox Church in center city Philadelphia. Before leaving for Georgia, Barry oversaw the construction of both phases of St. Philip’s church building, and upon returning to Pennsylvania recently, spearheaded several renovation projects. He will be greatly missed.
In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made to The King’s Jubilee, which can be given through St Philip’s (or directly using the Paypal Donate button and we will give the family a card with your specified greeting). The King’s Jubilee has been ministering in Jesus’ Name among poor and homeless people in Philadelphia since February of 1989, currently traveling down weekly to serve meals to nearly 200 people. We also seek to equip and encourage any who wish to join them in similar service, wherever they are located.
Services will be held at St Philip’s as follows:
Monday, October 1:
Viewing 7-9 p.m. (Trisagion at 8 p.m.)
Tuesday, October 2:
Viewing 10-11 a.m.
Funeral 11 a.m.
followed by burial at St Philip’s Cemetery & Mercy Meal in the Great Room
St Philip Orthodox Church
1970 Clearview Rd

May his memory be eternal!
As a generation passes, I think, who will step in to do this work? What three men or women can we find to do what this man did?
