Dear Parishioners and Friends,
Since the turn of the 19th century Eastern Orthodox immigrants have settled in the Range area. In 1908, a group of Serbian immigrants formed a St. Vasilije (Basil) Serbian Orthodox Church School Congregation and in 1910 built a Church in Chisholm, MN. This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the building of that Church.
A gala celebration will be held the weekend of July 17-18, 2010!
