Funeral service for His Holiness Patriarch Pavle

Wednesday, November 18, 2009
On Thursday, 19th November 2009, His Holiness' funeral ceremony shall start at 07:30, with Holy Liturgy at Saborna Church. 
The funeral procession will depart with the coffin at 09:30, to the St. Sava Temple, for the funeral service. 
At 12:30, funeral procession will head to Rakovica Monastery, where His Holiness Patriarch Pavle will be laid to rest at 13:00 hours.

According to the Patriarch's personal request and recommendation, the Holy Synod appealed to all faithful not to bring wreaths to the funeral service, but to only light candles, and instead, according to their possibilities and wishes, donate toward the completion of the temple. People who cannot attend the complete funeral ceremony can pay their respect by standing in front of their houses.
