THE PRIEST OF THE PARISH
The Very Reverend Protopresbiter Cornel Avramescu
The Very Reverend Protopresbiter Cornel Avramescu arrived in the USA in 1985. He was expelled from Romania by the communist regime because he was the coauthor with other four priests to a letter read at Radio “Free Europe” where they requested the release from prison of Father Gheorghe Calciu Dumitreasa and religious liberty. He, preoteasa and a small group of parishioners started the construction of the church in 1991. He is married to Preoteasa Eugenia. He has two sons: Cornelus and Eugen. Father Cornel and preoteasa Eugenia have served the Orthodox Church for over 49 years.
