HRH Prince Mihailo celebrates Family Patron Saint in Mona Vale

On Sunday, 13 December 2009 at the Pro-Cathedral of St Sava His Grace Bishop Irinej celebrated the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy in commemoration of the Feast of St Andrew the First Called. For the very first time HRH Prince Mihailo Karadjordjevic celebrated his family Slava at our Parish which his late father +HRH Prince Tomislav visited back in 1991. During the liturgy, His Grace Irinej spoke of the life of St Andrew who was the first-called of the Apostles and was crucified for Christ on a cross in the shape of an "X". St Andrew the First-called is also the Patron Saint of Constantinople Patriarchate in addition to the Royal House of Karadjordjevic.

At the conclusion of the liturgy and cutting of the Slavski kolac a luncheon was prepared in the school hall. As the School and Folklore year has finished, HRH Prince Mihailo handed out the Yearly report cards and certificates to our Serbian School and Folklore students.
