Canton, OH - On February 22nd, 2014, His Grace Bishop Dr Mitrophan baptized the youngest child of Rev Aleksa and Popadija Emily Pavichevich, Milana, at St George the Great-Martyr Serbian Orthodox Church in North Canton, Ohio. The church community showed up, in full, to joyfully welcome their newest member into the family.
Milana's Kumovi, Nikola and Kim Malobabic, are dedicated stewards of Father Aleksa's former parish in Lorain, Ohio. They, along with the church community in Lorain, provided care and support for Milana before she was born. As her godparents they will continue to provide support and guidance as she grows up in her Orthodox faith.
May the Lord God grant Milana, her parents Fr Aleksa & Emily, and her kumovi Nikola and Kim many, many years!
