According to the Patriarch’s personal request and recommendation, the Holy Synod of Bishops appealed to all the faithful not to bring flowers to the funeral service, but to only use candles, and in lieu of flowers for the deceased to give a free will offering (according to their capabilities) for the completion of the Memorial Church of St. Sava in Vracar.
The contributions will be collected at the Church of Holy Trinity in Perth until St Sava Day (27 January 2010) and will be forwarded through the Episcorale office to Patriarchate in Belgrade.
All those willing to make donation should contact f. Milorad every Sunday after the service and his appointed member of the church board. They will keep all records and issue receipts. The first donation for this purpose has already been made by Boro Graovac after the liturgy on 22 November 2009.
