MEMORY ETERNAL! Fr. Matthew Baker

Many who read the Ortho Thought may have already heard the news of the tragic accident involving Fr. Matthew Baker last evening. 

Fr. Matthew Baker, a young priest in the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Boston, was called from this life as a result of an auto accident late yesterday afternoon.  He was a deeply devoted priest, husband and father of six children.  We grieve for the acute loss of his presence and ministry and offer prayers for the repose of his soul.  May God’s comfort be in abundance to his wife, Presbytera Katherine, his children and extended family. 

I will not try and report all that is available about this tragedy on-line right now, but I would like to make a few links available as a testament to his life and ministry.  You’ll also find a link to a “Go Fund Me” site that has been set up to benefit his family.
