Anglican Communion Ban Brochure, ‘Asoebi’ Uniform During Burials

The Anglican Communion has reportedly banned the printing of brochure and ceremonial dresses aka ‘asoebi’ during burial ceremonies of its members in a bid to reduce the cost of funerals. 

Ven. Ikechukwu Ihemtuge, Vicar in charge of St. Andrew’s Church, Obosi, disclosed this during the church service on Sunday, in Obosi Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State.
Ihemtuge stressed that the diocese took the decision at its June 2019 Synod of its 19 archdeaconry at Abatete, Idemili North Local Government Area of the state.
“The decision was that of the church to checkmate burial frivolities of the faithful and reduce the burial challenges of its members,” he said.

He advised the faithful who came for outing services after the burial of their beloved ones to be informed of the new diocesan laws on burial rites and advised other faithful to abide by the law.
