Memory Eternal - 08/10/14

St. Herman mourns the loss of graduate Fr. Yago Steven. Fr. Vasilly Fisher, Dean of the Kuskokwim deanery, wrote the following about Fr. Yago:
“Fr. Yago was one of the first graduates of St. Herman’s Seminary along with his classmate Fr. Phillip Alexie.  He was a 1978 graduate of Saint Herman’s Seminary and ordained to the diaconate and priesthood in 1996 and 1999 respectively. During his priesthood, he served in the rural Alaskan communities of Bethel, Kasigluk, Kwigillingok, and Napaskiak.”
The Diocese of Alaska and St. Herman Seminary keeps Fr. Yago and his family in their prayers. May his memory be eternal!
