The government of Serbia has proclaimed three days of mourning, from November 16-18, 2009, following yesterday afternoon's death of Serbian Orthodox Church head, Patriarch Pavle.

The Serbian Holy Synod has decided that the patriarch would be laid to rest on Thursday, November 19, at the Rakovica monastery near Belgrade, but that date is not expected to be declared an official public holiday.
