Funeral Arrangements & Graveside Service for George Holdsworth

On the 16th of February 2018 at 9:00 AM, George will be returned to St. Nektarios church via the funeral home, and he will be greeted by both Father Job and Father John.

From his arrival until the funeral on Saturday morning, George will lie in repose in the care of our parish. In addition, the Psalms will be read continuously from George’s arrival until the time his funeral commences, both during the day and through the night.

On Saturday morning at 10:00 AM at  the funeral service for George will begin. The funeral will be held at St. Nektarios church with Father Job presiding over the service.

Immediately following the funeral, George will be moved to Woodlawn Cemetery. After the graveside service (Panikhida), the parish will return to St. Nektarios church to share in a common meal.

Father Job needs as many volunteers as possible who are willing to come to St. Nektarios church on Friday or Friday night to assist in the reading of the Psalms over George. If you can carve out even an hour, it will be most humbly and graciously appreciated.

If you have any questions or would like to volunteer to read the Psalms, please Please either text Father Job at 423-838-4030 or Elisabeth Segrest at 865-621-3844 as soon as possible.
