Washington, DC - The parish of the Holy Apostle and Evangelist Luke celebrated its parish Slava on Sunday, October 31, 2004.  It is an exciting time for this growing parish. The parish is anticipating a renovation of its  current building to house a chapel, fellowship hall and kitchen, this being only the beginning of the building plans for the parish.  

Our Slava was well attended and the Slavski Kolach and Zito was blessed by Fr. Aleksa Micich, our parish priest in our temporary chapel.  It  was also a day in which several of our individual families  also  celebrated their family slavas.  In one of the pictures below, we see an  added blessing.  The Serbian  Unity Congress, Washington  DC Chapter, last weekend generously donated to our  parish, a replica of  an icon of an angel from Sokolica Monastery in Kosovo, which has been reproduced by the hand of Igumanija  Makarija.  Kumovi for this years Slava was the  Hadijski family and  our Reader Miodrag Lazarevic accepted the honor to be Kum next year.
