On December 6, 2013, the Feast of St Nicholas the Wonderworker, MASI had a 40th day Liturgy celebrated for Subdeacon Prof Alphonse Lutz. Alphonse was a great friend and supporter of MASI, as well as Saint Paul University (where a room is named after him), Holy Spirit Seminary and the Greek Community of Ottawa. For this occasion the board members of MASIF were present for their AGM, including Metropolitan Lawrence Huculak OSBM of Winnipeg. Fr Alexander preached about Alphonse in the context of the generosity (and Greekness!) of St Nicholas.After the Divine Liturgy a panakhyda was celebrated for Alphonse before the faithful gathered for a tryzna memorial meal.
