Remembering Fr. Stacey Richter

On the morning of Sunday, September 5, 2021, Fr. Stacey Richter, our beloved pastor, unexpectedly fell asleep in the Lord while preparing for Divine Liturgy. 

The Archpriest Fr. Anastasy Richter, loving husband to Matushka Trudi Richter, and father to his three daughters Michal, Anika, and Sarah, was the Pastor this parish for far too short of a time. The work he and Matuska Trudi began here is still bearing fruit to the glory of God. We remember him each week in our services and know that he prays for us in his new heavenly home.
He is survived by his immediate family; his wife Trudi (Goertzen) Richter, his children, Michal and her husband Carlos, and twin daughters Sarah and Anika, his identical twin brother Kirby, sister-in-law Loretta and nephew Alex, his parents Wendell and Jean Richter, mother-in-law Katherine Goertzen, and many beloved brothers- and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews and cousins. 
May his memory be eternal.
