Boston, MA - On Saturday November 27, 2004 His Grace Bishop Dr. Mitrophan performed the Holy Mystery of Baptism at the St. Sava Church in Wakefield, baptizing little Draginja Vlajkovic.

This was a special joy for parents Fr. Aleksandar and Popadija Vera Vlajkovic especially since this is their sixth child that the Bishop has baptized. Assisting the bishop at the baptism were Fr. Djokan Majstorovic of New York, Fr. Ivan Marjanovic of Portland and the parish priest. Besides the large family that traveled from locations such as Chicago, Florida, Canada and Serbia approximately 100 parishioners joined in the festive occasion. It should be noted that little Draginja is the fiteenth great-grandchild of Draginja Curic, whose name she bears.
