Protection of the Theotokos – New Gracanica Monastery Slava
On Friday, October 14th, the Slava of the New Gracanica Monastery was celebrated in a most festive way. Bishop Longin officiated the Divine Liturgy and along him served sixteen priests and seven deacons.
The church was almost filled to capacity. After the Liturgy, the procession followed around the church with the Gospel readings. Later in the day, everyone gathered for the reception at the monastery hall, which was also almost completely full.
