On a sunny day, Sunday, November 24th Saratoga parish organized their annual Church Slava Celebration with His Grace Bishop Maxim and neighboring clergy in attendance. The Matins Service and Hierarchical Divine Liturgy started at 9:30 AM in our new and yet unfinished Church. Although the morning was cool and the Church is still without heating, that did not stop the faithful of St. Michael Parish and a good number of believers from neighboring parishes to come and fill our Church to its full capacity.
On July 18th and 19th, 1949. when the Church in Midland was consecrated, it was decided that the church will be dedicated to St. George, and at the suggestion of St. Bishop Nikolaj Velimirovic that it should be called “Lazarica”. That’s when it was decided that because, at that time, most of the church parishioners celebrated St. George in May, then the church slava would be in November 16th, when we celebrate Djurdjic, the restoration of the Holy Temple in Lydda Palestine and the transfer of the relics of St. George.
