Pascha in New York

Although the Saint Sava Serbian Cathedral community in New York City lost its church in the fire on Pascha May 1, 2016, with God’s grace, thanks to the brotherly love of the Greek and the Russian people, it continued uninterruptedly to conduct its services.

Both the Greek and the Russian Churches opened the doors of their temples to the faithful of theSaint Sava parish. One of those churches, where the Serbs regularly conduct their Sunday and weekly services, is a beautiful Greek Orthodox Church of Saint Eleftherios. This year the Serbs and Greeks gathered together here for the Great and Holy Friday service. Leading the service was His Grace Bishop Irinej, accompanied by V. Rev. Stavrophor Dr. Albert Demos, parish priest at the Greek Church of Saint Eleftherios, V. Rev. Stavrophor Dr. Zivojin Jakovljevic, Saint Sava Cathedral Dean, and V. Rev. Vladislav Radujkovic, parish priest at the Saint Sava Cathedral.

Три деценије Богословског факултета у Либертивилу

On The Thirtieth anniversary of The Serbian Orthodox School of Theology at St. Sava Monastery in Libertyville, Illionis 1986/87-2016/17

The most intelligent Serbian woman of the twentieth century, Isidora Sekulic, left us as a stimulant, but also a warning, the words she dedicated to Bishop Rade – Petar Petrovic Njegos, writing: „Blessed is that nation who has people with vision as their leaders“. The history of our people does not lack in people with vision, but, truth be told, not all visionaries succeded to embody their visions. One of the rare visionaries among Serbian spiritual fathers of the twentieth century who succeded to begin and lay the foundation of an unbelievabe far-reaching vision, on the cochlea of the Serbian peolpe, but also the entire fullness of Orthodoxy, in America, was Bishop of Sumadija, Bishop Dr. Sava (Vukovic), of blessed memory.
