Saint Sava Celebration in New York

St. Sava Cathedral of New York City celebrated its temple's patronal feast of St. Sava of Serbia on January 22, 2017.

This was the first St. Sava celebration since the cathedral was severely damaged by fire. The most beautiful aspect of the slava celebration was the general atmosphere of delight which, thanks to the children of the Serbian School and the folklore group “Opancici,” prevailed in the hall of St. Eleutherios Greek Orthodox Church, which was so full that there were not enough seats for everyone.
