Youngwood, PA - The great Orthodox feast of the Holy Foremost of the Apostles Sts. Peter and Paul was solemly celebrated at the Serbian Orthodox Church of the Holy Ascension of our Lord in Youngwood, PA on Thursday, July 12, 2007. His Grace Bishop Mitrophan of Eastern America officiated at the Divine Liturgy, assisted by host priest Fr. Miladin Blagojevic and Deacon Dragoslav Kosic. Though a weekday and a time many take their summer vacations, the church was filled with the faithful.

Following the Divine Liturgy His Grace, the bishop, gave the homily, in which he spoke of the work of these holy Apostles. Afterwards, His Grace, to the joy of all those in attendance, gave recognition to Mrs. Angeline Babich, the president of the Church School Congregation in Youngwood with the esteemed Episcopal GRAMATA.

For the last twelve years Mrs. Babich has been in the position of president of the Church School Congregation. With this recognition it is evident that she had for years made a sacrifice for the betterment of her parish and that her life is that of a true Christian.

This was truly a beautiful and blessed day for our parish.

Fr. Miladin Blagojevic
