History of Serbs in America is a history of America

 A book promotion was held for All Roads Lead To Jackson by Milina Jovanovic at the Office for cooperation with the diaspora in the region, a publication of the Western American Diocese, Sebastian Press.

A two hour lecture of the true historical life of Serbs was delivered in the overfilled hall of the Office for cooperation with the diaspora, about Serbs who have spent already two centuries in California and have left behind strong traces, as they continue to do today. The author, a sociologist by profession, spent ten years researching, used many parameters in her methods of shaping her research in a study which in English has turned into “All Roads Lead To Jackson.”

Didn’t send your Christmas cards out yet? Still looking for the perfect gift? No worries if you follow the Julian calendar – you still have about 24 hours. Hundreds of Sacramentans don’t celebrate Christmas on Dec. 25; they celebrate the birth of Christ today and continue celebrating through tomorrow.

Sacramentans who launched their Christmas holiday last night include some Russians, Serbians, Ethiopians, Georgians, Coptic Christians from Egypt, Armenians and other followers of the Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox churches, said the Rev. Dino Pappademos of Saint Katherine Greek Orthodox Church in Elk Grove.
