Trаnslation of the Relics of Saint George at Cathedral Church in Novi Sad
The capital city of the Diocese of Backa, Novi Sad, celebrated worthily its Patron Saint-day - the Trаnslation of the Relics of Saint George the Great martyr.
The feast day’s vigil service was celebrated by Archimandrite Sergije (Karanovic), brother of the monastery Rmanj, from the diocese of Bihac-Petrovac. On the very day of the feast His Grace Bishop Irinej of Backa celebrated the Divine Liturgy with the concelebration of arhimandrite Sergije and local priests at the Cathedral church of Saint George.
The choir of the Cathedral church and students of the Seminary Saint Arsenije of Srem from Sremski Karlovci sang responses unanimously during the Divine Liturgy.
The Liturgy was attended by representatives of the City authorities, representative of the Reformed Church, pastor Elemir Botos and many representatives of the public and cultural life of our City.
For outstanding effort shown in his pastoral service, Bishop Irinej promoted Archpriest Ranko Gunjic to a rank of protopresbyter-stavrophor with a right to wear pectoral cross.
