Last Sunday we prayed a short Memorial Service for loved ones who have passed away. Our little church has quite a few parishenrs who have died and we do this service almost once a month.
Someone volunteers to make the Koliva (Memorial Wheat). Often this is someone related to whoever is being remembered that month.
After the prayers and blessings, we all join in sharing the sweet and spicy wheat, nuts, and dried fruit.
May Their Memory Be Eternal!
