Serbian Orthodox Church
Hans-Josef Becker, archbishop of Paderborn, handed over the cross at the Serbian embassy in Berlin, an embassy spokeswoman said.
The treasure is a gilded cross with a base so it can stand upright on a table and a hollow space for a religious relic.
His Grace Bishop Atanasije of Hvosno, vicar of Serbian Patriarch, served the Holy Hierarchal Liturgy on the occasion of the Patron's feast day of the church St. Thomas the Apostle on the New graveyard of Bezanija, and after that he served a commemoration in the Cathedral church to the great people's benefactor - Ilija Milosavljevic Kolarac.
On that occasion, His Grace will deliver a lecture on the theme "FROM REVELATION TO CHURCH: The Truths of the Gospel in the life of the Church and of the Christians in the Church." The lecture will be held in the large hall of the Cathedral beginning at 7:00 PM.
On a chilly Saturday morning on October 2, 2010, a small group of our parishioners gathered at St. Andrews Greek Orthodox Church in Chicago in order to support the endeavors of IOCC (International Orthodox Christian Charities) humanitarian organization.
