His Beatitude Patriarch Daniel officiated a memorial service at St George’s Chapel of his patriarchal residence for the rest of the soul of Serbian Patriarch Irinej on Sunday.
“The way in which he led the Serbian Orthodox Church strengthened its major role in the life of Serbian society, thus, contributing to the rapprochement of the Church to the people and the people to the Church. He militated for preserving and promoting the faith and values of Orthodoxy in a society affected by secularisation,” Patriarch Daniel noted.
Patriarch Irinej who died at the age of 90 was laid to rest at the Church of Saint Sava on Sunday, Nov. 22.
