Divine Liturgy and memorial service at Ibongo

At the parish of Saint John Theologos, at the village Ibongo, took place today, Saturday 10th of December, Divine Liturgy and memorial service, joining to the Liturgy all the believers of the village.

After the memorial service, “koliva” (memorial food) were distributed, as also a meal, in loving memory of our brother Konstantinos, for his 1-year memorial service. In the end, an orthodox mother came with her newborn child at the church in order the priest to read and bless the baby with a special blessing they read at the 40th day of the child. It makes us more than happy the fact that our brothers in Tanzania, are in contact with the orthodox tradition and integrate it in their lives.
