The memorial service was led by the Bishop conducted inside the cathedral and after at his grave at the cathedral cemetery. His Grace reminded the faithful present that, in our Orthodox Faith, we have an obligatory tradition of always remembering the departed and praying for them because our repose in the Lord does not mean the complete dissolution of our lives but a start of a new life in Paradise (Paradiso) with our Lord and our Savior Jesus Christ.
Another service on the same commemoration was conducted at the St. Antonios Orthodox Church in Monde Luweero District which was conducted by the Metropolitan of Kampala, His Eminence Jonah Lwanga.
May the Memory of our spiritual father and Archbishop Theodoros be Eternal always.
