NFTU: The following notice was given on the Synod website:
Archbishop Joseph of Edmonton reposed this afternoon, on the Feast of St. Nicholas. It is with much sadness that we report this.
Archbishop Joseph was beloved by his fellow hierarchs, as well as the clergy, and the laity, of our Church. We therefore ask all the clergy and laity of our Church to remember Vl. Joseph in their prayers, and for the clergy to serve memorial services for him these next 40 days.
Give rest, O Lord, to the soul of Thy servant, and establish him in Paradise. Where the choirs of the Saints, O Lord, and the of the Just, shine like the stars of heaven, give rest to Thy servant who hath fallen asleep, regarding not all his transgressions.
