Fr. Dennis Moffatt Reposes in the Lord
(Funeral 8th October)
On Friday 8th. October the funeral of Fr. Dennis took place. At his home
his family and a few friends surrounded his coffin and a panikhida was
served. His body was then taken to the Church of St. Columba and St.
Kentigern for the funeral service.
A large congregation filled the church to overflowing. Eleven priests
and two deacons from four jurisdictions were in attendance surely a
fitting tribute to Fr. Dennis's life as a priest. The augmented choir
sang beautifully and the address was given by Fr. George (Evans). The
service in church concluded with the Last Kiss.
Fr. Dennis was then laid to rest in the Orthodox plot at Rosehill
Cemetery in Doncaster. After the singing of "Memory Eternal" we sang the
Easter troparia "Christ is risen....." in English, Greek, Church
Slavonic and Arabic, a truly moving moment for everyone.
On returning to church a further panikhida was served. A reception was
held at the country club where not so long ago Father held his seventy
fifth birthday party.
Father Dennis "Memory Eternal!"
