Hundreds of believers gathered at the local Serbian Orthodox cathedral in Trebinje to attend the memorial service for the late, retired Bishop of Zahumlje-Herzegovina, Atanasije, who passed away on March 4 due to COVID-19.

Atanasije will be buried at the Tvrdos Monastery and the Metropolitan Bishop of Dabar-Bosna, Hrizostom Jevic, as well as the head of the Eparchy of Dusseldorf and all of Germany, Grigorije, head of the Eparchy of Budimlja and Niksic in Montenegro, Joanikije Micovic, as well as Maksim Vasiljevic, Bishop of the Diocese of Western America, will lead the funeral service.

Atanasije was admitted to the hospital in Trebinje in February after testing positive for the coronavirus.

His condition dramatically deteriorated two days ago, when he was put on a ventilator since he had bilateral pneumonia.
