IN THE NAME OF THE HOLY AND LIFEGIVING TRINITY!

We, the clergy, monastics, and representatives of the people of God, ordained and elected members to the Annual Assembly of the Serbian Orthodox Diocese of Eastern America, Serbian Orthodox Church, have gathered together at the church of the Holy Great and Victorious Martyr George in the God-protected city of Clearwater, Florida on February 16 and 17, in the year of our Lord 2018.

Speak to the entire assembly of Israel and say to them:
‘Be holy because I, the Lord your God, am Holy’ (Lev. 19:2).

Today, when we celebrate the memory of the Venerable Isidore of Pelusium, the Holy Spirit has gathered us in the community of the Body of Christ that He might bring us closer us to our Heavenly Father. Having announced the fullness of God’s Church, gathered around our Bishop, Father and Archpastor Irinej, we greet the fullness of the Serbian Orthodox Church in the person of His Holiness, the Archbishop of Pech, Metropolitan of Belgrade and Karlovci, and Serbian Patriarch Irinej.

Mother Euphrosyne reposed in the Lord

Mother Euphrosyne the Abbess of Gračanica Monastery reposed in the Lord this morning in her 90th year.

As a great ascetic laborer of Christ’s love she devoted her life from her early youth as a nun. Now her blessed soul rushes to embrace the Lord whom she so ardently served. Memory eternal!
