TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME RACE STREET IN THE CITY OF CHARLESTON "FATHER NICHOLAS C. TRIVELAS MEMORIAL BOULEVARD" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS ALONG THIS STREET CONTAINING THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, the Reverend Father Nicholas Christ Trivelas, son of the late Christ and Kalliopi Trivelas, was born in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on February 19, 1921, and fell asleep in the Lord on October 4, 2008, in Charleston; and
Whereas, Father Trivelas graduated from Holy Cross Theological Seminary in 1944 and was ordained to the priesthood in 1945; and
Whereas, he arrived in Charleston on Mother's Day in 1948 and remained in Charleston to serve his beloved Holy Trinity and the spiritual and educational needs of the Greek Orthodox Community with love and dedication; and
Whereas, Father Trivelas' greatest pleasure was watching the children of his parish become dedicated adults who practice their faith with love and who preserve the traditions of Orthodoxy for future generations; and
Whereas, during his forty-seven-year ministry, Father Trivelas was instrumental in ensuring that the sanctuary of Holy Trinity included authentic Byzantine iconography. As a result, Holy Trinity has the largest collection of Kontoglou icons outside of Greece; and
Whereas, Father Trivelas and his wife, Despina Ross Trivelas, raised four outstanding children. He is survived by a host of relatives and friends; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to honor the memory of this outstanding man of God by having Race Street in Charleston named in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That members of the General Assembly request the Department of Transportation name Race Street in the City of Charleston "Father Nicholas C. Trivelas Memorial Boulevard" and erect appropriate markers or signs along this street containing this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
