Congresswoman Honors Rev. Hadgigeorge in US House.


Known as a peacemaker who led with quiet strength, Reverend Chris Hadgigeorge of blessed memory was recently honored on CSPAN by US Rep Marcy Kaptur.

Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur referred to Reverend Chris Hadgigeorge, former pastor and pastor emeritus of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in North Toledo, Ohio, as “an exceptional American and extraordinary human being.”

Feeling called to be a priest from an early age, Fr. Chris often played priest as a child.

Fr. Chris Hadgigeorge, 91, passed away Thursday, on December 31, 2015,

We pray his family find every comfort in their loss.

May we have his prayers.
