'''Savanon''', also '''sratchitza''', is a white linen garment worn by the [[bishop]] during the washing of the [[altar]] table during the [[consecration of a church]]. It is also a burial shroud that cover covers the casket of a deceased believer during the services for the departed.
During the service for a consecration of a church, the celebrant bishop is vested in the savanon over his vestments prior to the washing/[[baptism]] of the altar table. As the consecration service concludes the bishop removes the savanon that he wore and may offer it to be cut up into small pieces that are given to each person attending the service.
