Serbian Orthodox Church
On Sunday, January 26, the parish and Church School of St. George Serbian Orthodox Church in Schererville, Indiana, celebrated the patron saint of all Orthodox Serbs – Saint Father Sava, the first Serbian Archbishop and Enlightener. Heavy snow and low temperatures not remembered for decades did not prevent a large number of parishioners and children to take part in the celebration. After the Divine Liturgy, Prota Dobrivoje Milunović blessed the Slava bread and wheat followed by a slava luncheon. Kumovi for this year's slava were Nenad, son of Drago and Nada Vujnić, natives of Kričke in Dalmatia, and Natasa, the daughter of Kristina and Predrag Tomic, natives of Glamoc.
The St. Nicholas Church-School congregation in Phoenix, Arizona celebrated their fiftieth anniversary last weekend. "Formal and solemn" best describe the atmosphere among the Serbs in metro Phoenix. With their presence three hierarchs elevated the truly great jubilee: the host, Bishop Maxim of Western America, Bishop Longin of New Gracanica and Midwestern America and special guest Bishop Grigorije of Zahum and Herzegovina. There were also guests who came from all over: Herzegovina, Chicago, California, Hawaii.
