Reader Vladimir's widow
and children pose with mission clergy after
funeral service in Port-au-Prince.
Port-au-Prince - Saturday February 12 on the occasion of the first anniversary of the terrible earthquake that has forever changed the lives of every Haitian in the world, members of the ROCOR mission in Haiti sang a requiem at the Church of the Nativity of the Virgin (Port-au-Prince) in memory of all those who have fallen asleep in hope of resurrection on that terrible day, especially the reader Vladimir Randiche who went missing. The ceremony was very moving because everyone had come to mourn a mother, father, sister, brother, husband, wife, children, friends and fellow citizens.
The Orthodox Mission of Haiti to the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Borders would like to thank everyone who helped us to overcome these difficult times and continue to help us and especially for the spirit of international solidarity you have shown us after this disaster killed more than 300,000, 5,000 lost limbs and almost a million remain homeless.
With love in Christ,
Fr. Gregoire Legoute
