An orthodox funeral consists of three important services:

  • Vigil Service: The vigil or viewing service is usually carried out the night before the funeral, either at the home of the departed or in the church. The priest along with the attendees offers prayers for the departed soul by singing the Trisagion hymn.
  •  Funeral Service: After the wake and mass, the prepared body is taken to the church in a holy procession led by the priest. In the church, the priest offers prayers and blessings over the Koliva. After the service ends, mourners can approach the casket to say their final goodbyes.
  •  Burial Service: With the Trisagion being sung in the background, the casket is closed and transported to the cemetery, whereby the body is buried as per orthodox funeral rules.
