ARCHBISHOP DEMETRIOS EXPRESSES CONDOLENCES for the Family of Tim Maniatis
NEW YORK – Timothy (Tim) J. Maniatis, Archon Exarchos and longtime consultant with the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America fell asleep in the Lord, Saturday, Aug. 2, 2014. (Correction: his Greek name is not Timothy but Euthymius).
Mr. Maniatis was a well-known organizer and leader in the Greek-American Community, participating in many organizations including AHEPA and the National Hellenic Society. He was a special consultant to the Archdiocese and Leadership 100 for planning events and most importantly, the Biennial Clergy Laity Congress. He served for many years on the Archdiocesan Council. Commenting on his passing, Archbishop Demetrios released this statement:
On behalf of the Holy Eparchial Synod and the Clergy and Lay Faithful of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, I am offering our profound condolences on the falling asleep in the Lord of the most esteemed Archon and co-worker in the Lord, Tim Maniatis. Tim was an outstanding co-worker, committed deeply to Hellenism and to his Faith, and assisted the Archdiocese for many years with his many skills. He would work behind the scenes and never take credit, always allowing others to shine. He will surely be deeply missed by his family, but also by all of us who have had the lasting privilege to know and work with him for the good of the Church. May his memory be eternal.
His wife Stracie, daughter Jenna and son-in-law Alex Lee, and daughter Stephanie survive him.
The viewing will be on Wednesday, August 6, from 7 to 9 pm at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of St. Sophia in Washington DC. Archbishop Demetrios of America will officiate at the funeral the next morning, Thursday, Aug. 7 at 10:30 am again at the Cathedral. The Greek Orthodox Cathedral of St. Sophia is located at 2815 36th Street and Massachusetts Avenue, N.W., Washington, DC 20007.
It was a great shock to us. He was 72. Zoie Sas. [May his memory be eternal]
