The clergy and faithful of the Cleveland Deanery traveled to Monastery New Marcha – Archangel Gabriel on Holy Wednesday evening for the service of Holy Unction. This is the second year this Holy Mystery has been celebrated by the deanery clergy.
With the Blessing of His Grace Bishop Irinej, on April 18. 2017, priests from the Cleveland Deanery gathered with priests from the Pittsburgh Deanery at Holy Trinity Serbian Orthodox Church in Youngstown, Ohio to joyfully concelebrate the Paschal Divine Liturgy of Bright Tuesday. This event was hosted by the Rev. Presbyter Dragan Gorojnic, Episcopal Dean of the Cleveland Deanery.
Once again this year the faithful of the St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church in St. Petersburg, FL gathered together to celebrate the Resurrection of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ. The Midnight Office began at 6:45am and the Procession around the church while chanting Thy Resurrection O Christ our God began about 7am. There may have been only about 40 or so so early, but the faithful came as the light of the morning grew brighter so that by the end of the Paschal Matins and the beginning of the Paschal liturgy the church was fuller than it had been in many years!
