At Easter this year the New York parish experienced a great dislocation. The only Serbian Orthodox church in the New York City area caught fire, and since then the services are taking place in Episcopalian or Greek church buildings.
His Holiness Irinej, Serbian Patriarch received Mr. Vladimir Chepurin, Ambassador of Belarus to Serbia at the Serbian Patriarchate in Belgrade on 3 January 2016.
This year's host for the Winter Camp of St. Petersburg's Deanery was the parish of Sts. Peter and Paul, here in Atlanta, GA. The main theme of the camp was "According to your faith let it be done to you." Matthew 9:29.
Winter Camp was held from December 26th – 28th, 2016 at host parishes St Archangel Michael in Akron and St George in North Canton. The theme for this year’s camp was “Finding Christ in the Feast”.
Today in our holy St. Petka Church, on this Sunday before Christmas - on Serbian Father's Day - His Grace Bishop Maxim of Western America served the Holy Hierarchical Divine Liturgy together with Prota Milan and Prota Milovan. After liturgy, on this holiday when our fathers are tied up and have to be untied through their gifts of love, all in preparation for the Feast of the Lord's Nativity, our children tied up Bishop Maxim and he bought his freedom by giving them gifts and his blessing.
