Sunday, Sept 15: Prayer for our Students and the Start of the Academic Year

Dear Brother and Sisters,

On Sunday, September 15, 2019, following the Holy Liturgy we will pray for all the students of our Parish for the start of the new Academic Year.

Additionally, our Sunday School lessons for the youngest (junior and middle school aged) group will resume again, taking place every Sunday following the Agape at our Parish. The lessons will be in Serbian and per need in English too: all children are welcome and no one will be left out for simply not knowing Serbian well enough.

You will be updated later on the expected schedule of Spiritual Conversations for Teenagers and Adults.
