He was born on October 9, 1970, in Elmira, NY, the son of Matushka Dorothy Kokinchak Sulich of South Canaan, PA and the late Archpriest Samuel Sulich.  He was a graduate of Western Wayne High School, South Canaan. He furthered his education in getting a Bachelor of Science degree from Marywood University, Scranton, PA, and a Master of Divinity Degree from Saint Tikhon’s Seminary, South Canaan. He was employed for 19 years at the Chancery Office of the Orthodox Church in America.

His greatest joy in life was serving as Subdeacon and he was a lover of sports.

In addition to his mother, he is survived by aunts, uncles and cousins.

May Subdeacon Gregory’s memory be eternal!

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
