The funeral and burial of Alexandra Sorokina
On Monday 31 December the Dean of New South Wales, Mitred Archpriest Nikita Chemodakov, presided at the funeral service in our church of Alexandra Sorokina. Alexandra, who departed this life on 20 December, having received Holy Communion and anointing with oil on the previous day, was 90 years of age. She was afterwards laid to rest at Point Clare Cemetery. We offer our heartfelt condolences to Alexandra’s daughter Elena, son-in-law Ilia, and grandson Alexey. May God grant his newly-departed handmaiden rest with the saints and life everlasting!
