Funeral Mass For Anti-apartheid Icon, Desmond Tutu
Official funeral service of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Mpilo Tutu held at the St George’s Cathedral in Cape Town
The requiem mass for Archbishop Desmond Tutu began on Saturday morning in Cape Town’s Anglican cathedral, a ceremony he had arranged himself and wanted to be modest.
The simple coffin, which bore a small bouquet of carnations, was in line with wishes for modesty expressed by the much-loved rights advocate before he died.
The service started with a song and a procession of clerics down the aisle burning incense and carrying candles in the church where Tutu will also be buried.
