Susan and Patrick Viscuso were graduate students during their time in Rhode Island from 1985 until 1988.
They were just married in August 1985 and were studying for doctorates. Susan would graduate with a PhD in Psychology (1988) and Patrick, with a PhD in Historical Theology (1989). During their time in Rhode Island, they lived in a third-floor student apartment on Lloyd Avenue off Thayer Street, near Brown University where Susan was enrolled. Patrick had graduated from Holy Cross School of Theology, the Greek Orthodox seminary (1981), and was completing his doctoral thesis, long-distance, at The Catholic University of America (Washington, D.C.). Susan and Patrick had met at The Catholic University, where Susan had graduated college (1984).
During their time in Rhode Island, both were parishioners at Annunciation Church and have many memories of the wonderful people they met. During Greek festivals, Susan learned life-long skills by selling raffle tickets with Stella Pappas, often to people who had no intention or inclination of buying them! Patrick gave church tours and met a tremendous number of people from throughout Rhode Island, including the politicians of the day! On the weekends, Susan and Patrick were regularly invited by Blanch Erinakes to her movie theatre in East Greenwich, where they helped her out at the concession stand selling popcorn to the patrons, and spent more time enjoying each other’s company than actually going to films.
Working closely with Fr. Andrew, Patrick served as the chanter for the parish for several years. In addition to the Orthros on Sundays, feast day services, and all Holy Week, he served the people of the community at every baptism, wedding, and funeral. Both Fr. Andrew and Fr. Stephen Papadoulias, a retired priest then at the parish who had a wonderful singing voice, shared valuable life and church lessons with Susan and Patrick that would help them both, especially after Patrick was ordained a Greek Orthodox priest in 1991.
Susan and Fr. Patrick are grateful to Fr. Andrew and to the entire community of the Annunciation, and will always treasure the many wonderful warm memories of Rhode Island from the early part of their marriage. They look forward to returning and visiting at the end of the month, June 27 to 30.
