Repose of Subdeacon Prince Dmitri Galitzine

Subdeacon Prince Dmitri Galitzine reposed in the Lord suddenly on 9th March n.s., while visiting Greece. Since his childhood days he had been a faithful member of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad parish in London, but after the submission of the majority of their hierarchy to the Moscow Patriarchate, he left and became a member of our communities under the Church of the Genuine Orthodox Christians of Greece. His funeral was chanted and he was laid to rest at the Holy Angels Convent at Afidnai in Greece.

Our Bishop, Ambrose of Methoni, and Metropolitan Photios of Dimitrias served the funeral, and, with the blessing of Abbess Taxiarchia, the sisters at the Convent have kindly sent us the following pictures of the service.  We ask the faithful to remember Subdeacon Dmitri in their prayers especially for his forty days.
