With the blessings of His Holiness Patriarch Pavle of Serbia and His Eminence Metropolitan Amphilohije of Montenegro and the Coastlands, His Grace Bishop Mitrophan of Eastern America officiated at the Holy Hierarchical Divine Liturgy at St. George the Great Martyr on Banovo Brdo, assisted by His Grace Bishop Atanasije of Hvostna and Vicar to His Holiness. Also on this day, the daycare center “Djurdjevak”, a part of this parish, celebrated their Slava.

Assisting the hierarchs were V. Rev. Stavrophor Caslav Marinkovic, Protonamesnik Vitomir Kostic, Deacon Jovan Lucic and Deacon Savo Topalovic and hierodeacon Christopher (Nedjic). Following the Divine Liturgy His Grace Bishop Mitrophan cut the Slava Kolach and addressed the faithful and the children with paternal words, inspired the morning's gospel reading, he pointed out that riches are a great temptation but also a great burden for man to renounce, and he carries it with much difficulty, for it is difficult to handle money, especially if we don't notice the poor and to all of those who are in need of material help.  

Following the service all the guests took part in the luncheon at the Parish home. We wish a Joyous Slava to all workers and children who attend the Djrudjevak daycare center and with all of our hearts do we exclaim: GOD GRANT YOU MANY YEARS!!!
