On Tuesday 14th November at St. John’s, Osmotherley, the Funeral Service of Fr Christopher Neill took place. Archimandrite Philip, Archpriest Gregory, Fr Samuel and Fr Jonathan concelebrated the service.
Fr Gregory mentioned in his homily that His Eminence, Sayedna Silouan, our Metropolitan, could not be present for health reasons but that he conveyed his love and prayers for Duncan and all the family at this sad time. Indeed the love and prayers of all the Archdiocese was felt by everyone in the service.
The service was well attended with mourners, family and friends all in support. Fr Christopher was then buried with his dearly beloved wife, Georgianna in the churchyard. All our love and prayers go to Duncan, Fr Christopher’s son, and the rest of the family.
