The Divine Liturgy of St. Basil the Great was celebrated at Midnight on January 14, 2023 in honor of his Feast Day and the Circumcision of the Lord at the New Marcha Holy Archangel Gabriel Monastery in Richfield, Ohio.
With the blessings of His Grace Bishop Irinej, visiting spiritual father, the Venerable Protosyngelos Sava (Vukajlovic) from the Metropolitanate of Montenegro and the Littoral invited Syngelos Nektarije (Tesnovic) of Lorain, Ohio and Deacon Milan Damljanovic of Cleveland, Ohio to celebrate the Holy Liturgy and thereby mark the dual feast and usher in the New Year with prayer and thanksgiving.
Responses were sung by the Monastery Choir under the direction of Professor Dr. Nikola Resanovic.
Together with the monastic community, Sr. Anastasia and Novice Milunka, faithful from the Greater Cleveland area gathered in prayer and worship.
With gratitude to Fr. Sava, the daily liturgical cycle at New Marcha now includes weekday Liturgy at 8:00 AM, Feast Days and Sundays at 10:00 AM and Vigil Services at 5:00 PM. Faithful from the Pan-Orthodox Community join the monastics on a regular basis. Everyone is welcome!
May this New Year of the Lord’s Mercy and Grace fill all with an abundance of joy, health and blessings!
