The Diocese of Chicago & Mid-America sadly must report that Metropolitan Amfilohije of Montenegro and the Littoral has reposed in the Lord. Archbishop Peter asks that the newly-reposed be remembered at the Divine Liturgy during these 40 days (the 40th day will be December 8 according to the civil calendar). It is not traditional to serve for the reposed on Sundays, so those fathers that would like to serve a pannykhida on the weekend should do so before Vigil on Saturday. Of course, it is permissible and encouraged to remember the newly-reposed at the Great Entrance on Sunday. We include several pictures here of Metropolitan Amfilohije serving at the Diocesan Cathedral as part of the delegation, headed by Patriarch Irinej, on July 4/17, 2017.
Please contact your Dean or me with questions.

Secretary of the Diocese
