On Friday, October 30, 2020, at 8:20 am, at the Clinical Hospital Center of Montenegro, after receiving the Holy Sacrament of Communion, the Most Holy Archbishop of Cetinje, the Metropolitan of Montenegro Amfilohije, passed away”, is written on the official website of the Metropolitan of Cetinje.
He was cured at the Clinical Hospital Center of Montenegro in Podgorica, where he was hospitalized on October 6 due to the deterioration of his condition caused by the coronavirus. Although he had resulted negative for the coronavirus for 10 days, he had pneumonia and his health suddenly deteriorated a few days ago, despite the tremendous efforts of the entire medical team.
The death of His Grace is a great loss for the Serbian church and all the Orthodox believers. Metropolitan Amfilohije has given a great help for the organization and celebration of Orthodox religious holidays and has visited our community in Shkoder many times, delivering messages of peace and harmony. Under His blessing since 1992 for almost 30 years Christmas Easter and other holidays of the Orthodox believers have been organized and celebrated in Shkoder and Vraka.
With His blessing, annual scholarships have been awarded to our minority students, regardless of religion, who are pursuing higher studies at Belgrade universities.
May His memory be eternal! May he rest in peace!
