Patron Saint's Day of the Faculty of Law in Belgrade
Since 2006, every September 27 on the Feast day of the Cross, the Faculty of Law of the University of Belgrade celebrates its day and its Patron Saint's Day, since the regular teaching at the Orthodox department of the Lyceum in Belgrade began on September 14, 1841 according to the Julian calendar.
On this occasion, His Holiness Irinej, Serbian Patriarch visited yesterday the Faculty of Law, the oldest education institution in Serbia whose head since 2004 was academician Dr Mirko Vasiljevic.
After the slava cake was cut, Serbian Patriarch Irinej solemnly opened the Museum display at the Faculty of Law.
Addressing professors and students of the Faculty of Law, Patriarch Irinej commended their dedication to St. Sava, not only in education but also in tradition, culture and faith.
The slava gathering, besides the Deputy Prime Minister of the Serbian Government Mr. Ivica Dacic, there were also representatives of other faculties and Universities in Serbia, as well as many representatives of science, culture and art of the Serbian capital.
