Farewell to Priest Marko Bojovic and Popadija Biljana

Even though farewell for these good people was planned and realized on the day of the celebration of our patron saint (December 18th) and the ordination of priest Marko, and even though this was Sunday January 1 and was not especially announced and promoted, the church was full and very emotional for the last Divine liturgy with two of our faithful who will be serving a church in Jackson California.
