On Wednesday, 10 April 2024, a Pre-Sanctified Liturgy and memorial service for Archbishop Iakovos of blessed memory was held at the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America Headquarters in the Chapel of Saint Paul.

The chapel and bordering hall were filled with faithful and Archdiocese staff who came together to celebrate the extraordinary leadership of Archbishop Iakovos.

Archbishop Elpidophoros of America presided over the service which was celebrated by Archdiocesan District Chancellor Fr. Elias Villis and assisted by Rev. Archdeacon Dionysios.

Also attending were His Grace Bishop Athenagoras of Nazianzos, His Grace Bishop-Elect Nektarios Papzafiropoulos, His Grace Bishop-Elect Antonios Avramopoulos (Anton C. Vrame), and many area clergy.

Following the service a reception was held at the Archdiocese co-hosted by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese and the Church of Our Saviour in Rye, NY.
