The Parish of St. Gabriel the Archangel in Richmond Hill is the youngest parish of the Canadian Diocese. It was founded last year with the blessing of His Grace Bishop Grigorije of Canada and with efforts and dedication of its parish priest protopresbyter-staurophor Vasilije Tomic as well as good and honorable parishioners who helped them in this wholeheartedly.
Saint Gabriel the Archangel, the patron of the Church of St. Archangel in a suburb of Hrupjela (Rupjela) in Trebinje, was celebrated on July 24, 2011 with the Divine Liturgy served by Bishop Grigorije.
According to a long-time tradition in the Dalmatian Diocese the feast day of the Saint Kyriake is celebrated in churches and monasteries which are devoted to this martyr each Sunday in the month of July. Sunday after St. Peter's Day is determined for the church-people's assembly in Ocestovo and every year the feast day of St. Kyriake is most solemnly celebrated in this place.
