Greek Orthodox Funeral Traditions

Beneficial Service For Australian Born Greeks




The older generation of Greeks that settled in Australia for a better life lead to the increase in the population of Australian born Greeks. As this new generation started bidding farewell to their parents, many of them realised that they were uncertain of the Greek Orthodox funeral rites and traditions. Even though they may not be familiar with all the details, they wish to carry out the funeral proceedings in accordance with Greek Orthodox funeral traditions as this is what their parents would have wanted.

Chris Stamelos, the founder of Victoria Funerals, has vast knowledge and experience in offering traditional Greek Orthodox funeral services and can help the younger generation fulfil their parent’s wishes. Right from making arrangements in the deceased’s family home to the dressing of the deceased by the family, to the Trisagion, and finally the Greek Orthodox funeral service, Chris Stamelos and his staff will guide the family through every step to make it a memorable day for the family.
