Following the order of the Triodion, the Patriarchate dedicated Saturday, February 25/March 9, 2024, as a day of prayer for the repose of souls.

To this end, on Friday afternoon, in the Monastic and Patriarchal Church of Saints Constantine and Helen, the Canon for the departed was chanted and a memorial prayer was recited, led by His Beatitude, our Father and Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilos with the prayer for the repose of the Holy Sepulchre Patriarchs of Jerusalem, Hierarchs, Priests, monks and nuns who have been sleeping in the Lord for centuries.

On the morning of the Saturday mentioned above, a Divine Liturgy was celebrated by the Priest Ioannis, with the concelebration of Fr George Baramki, under the care of the Managing Director of the Patriarchal School, Elder Dragoman Archimandrite Matthaios in the Cemetery of Holy Zion.

At the end of the Liturgy, His Eminence Archbishop Aristarchos of Constantina held a memorial service and Trisagion for the departed Holy Sepulchre Fathers who are buried there, and the Priests Farah Bandour and George Baramki also held Trisagia for the departed members of our Orthodox flock.
