Symbol of cemetery at Sohar St George Church

SOHAR, Sultanate of Oman: Rev Fr C S Mathews, Vicar, St George Orthodox Church, Sohar, Sultanate of Oman, and members of the managing committee came up with a unique idea during the memory of All Departed Souls on Sunday. Photo Gallery
All Departed Souls Day was commemorated on Friday, February 1, 2013 in the presence of a large gathering of members of the church who gathered to pray in this unique manner. The church created a duplicate symbol of cemetery at the church premises for the remembrance of all the departed souls. Rev Fr C S Mathews led the solemn prayers during the occasion.
Fr Mathews says this ‘unique remembrance event’ had aroused a nostalgic feeling among all the church members.  The Vicar thanked the members who took part an active part in the commemoration service.
