Sunday Feb. 12, 2017 was the Tradesmen Slava, the Three Hierarchs. A tradesman is a skilled manual worker in a particular trade or craft. Your electrician, general contractor, air conditioning technician, the framer, the block mason, the slab guy, the dry wall guy, the plumber and many more that I have not mentioned. We have all used a tradesmen at one time or another. Serving in the Alter was Fr. Dragan Zaric and Fr. Jovan Todorovich.
