Archon Nicholas J. Bouras falls asleep in the Lord

ARCHON NICHOLAS J. BOURAS FALLS ASLEEP IN THE LORD

New York – Archbishop Demetrios of America announces with great sadness the falling asleep of a truly exceptional member of our Church, Archon Nicholas J. Bouras, on Sunday night, December 22, 2013.  Archon Bouras was a member of the Executive Committee of the Archdiocesan Council, National Vice Commander of the Order of St. Andrew, Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, member of the Board of Trustees of the Leadership 100 Endowment Fund, founder of FAITH: An Endowment for Orthodoxy and Hellenism, founder of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Westfield, NJ, major contributor for the building of the new Church of St. Anna in Flemington, NJ,  and a generous and committed member of numerous committees and boards within the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America’s institutions and organizations.

Archon Bouras was also a World War II hero, a prominent industrialist and an astonishingly generous philanthropist.  As owner and president of Bouras Industries from which he retired a few years ago, he donated profusely to assist in the construction of numerous parish churches within our Holy Archdiocese.

In addition to being an ardent and practical supporter of our Ecumenical Patriarchate and of our Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, he was instrumental, through his anonymous and huge donations, in supporting the diversified ministries of our Church in America.  He left us with a most precious legacy of true faith and genuine love.  May his memory be eternal!
