FAITHFUL STEWARD OF HOLY TRINITY NICHOLAS J. BOURAS FALLS ASLEEP IN THE LORD
It is with much sadness that we inform you that on Sunday, December 22, Nicholas J. Bouras, our brother in Christ, fell asleep in the Lord.
Nicholas Bouras was a World War II hero, a prominent industrialist and an astonishingly generous philanthropist. As owner and president of Bouras Industries from which he retired a few years ago, he donated profusely to assist in the construction of numerous parish churches within the Archdiocese.
He was an extraordinary Steward of Holy Trinity and its great benefactor. He was also an ardent supporter of our Ecumenical Patriarchate and of our Hellenic College/Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, he was instrumental, through his anonymous and huge donations, in supporting the diversified ministries of our Church in America. He left us with a most precious legacy of true faith and genuine love.
May our Lord, who is the Resurrection and Life, give rest to our dearly departed servant in a place of light, a place of comfort, and a place of refreshment where all sighing, sorrow and mourning are fled away.
