Fr. Emmanuel Colombos - May His Memory be Eternal!

On Thursday Morning March 6th at just past Midnight ProtoPresbyter Emmanuel Colombos fell asleep in the Lord. He was 94 years old. Fr. Manoli had served the Cathedral of St. Markella for 50 years since 1964 when he was ordained a Deacon by Metropolitan Petros of Astoria of Blessed Memory. In fact, he was the very first ordination ever done by Met. Petros. Fr. Manoli is survived by his wife Esther and his son George. May his memory be eternal!
