Akron, Oh - The St. Archangel Michael Serbian Orthodox Church in Akron hosted the Cleveland Deanery Vespers on Sunday, March 23, 2008.  Guest homilist was Protojerej-Stavrofor Dragan Filipovic from Canton, Ohio who spoke in both languages about the importance of fasting as a time for change. "If we are entering the third week of the fast and feel that nothing has changed in our lives, we're not going to church more, not praying more, not thinking and doing all we can do to help those in need, then this fast is meaningless," Fr. Dragan said.

Dinner followed in the social hall.  Host priest Protonamesnik Fr. Dragomir Tuba welcomed the clergy and all those in attendance and called upon all of the faithful gathered to, in light of the lenten season and particualary the words that Fr. Dragan had offered in church about charity, consider our suffering brothers and sisters in Kosovo who find themselves today in a very grave situation. Donations were collected for our suffering people in Kosovo.
