Johnstown, Pa - The St. Nicholas Serbian Orthodox Church in Johnstown, Pennsylvania hosted the Deanery Lenten Vespers on Sunday, April 13, 2008.

Host priest Fr. Dejan Obradovic, Father Vladimir Damshcuk from Clariton and Father Miladin Blagojevic from Yungwood, officiated.  The St. Nicholas Choir of Johnstown sang the responses under the direction of Suzette Gardenhour. Fr. Vladimir Demshuk gave a very nice sermon.

Following Vespers, the faithful went to the church hall for a dinner prepared by the Kolo Sisters of St. Nicholas Church. Executive Board President Richard Uzelac warmly welcomed all in attendance and expressed appreciation for everyone coming. He thanked Fr. Vladimir Demshuk for his beautiful homily that he delivered in the church and the choir who sang the responses as well as the Sisters who prepared a wonderful dinner.

All funds collected at the dinner will be donated by the parish for the benefit of the suffering Serbian People in Kosovo.

Thanks be to God for this blessed evening.
