Saratoga Parish Celebrates Slava

saratoga-slava-2012On Sunday, November 18, 2012 a sunny morning greeted the early arrivals for Matins, and the Baptism of a young non-Serbian student from the University of California in Berkeley.  To Robe Bishop Maxim in addition to our Father Slobodan Jovich were Fathers Dushan Bunjevic, Vasilije Cvijanovic, Djurica Gordic and Zoran Savic.  And for the second time since our Cornerstone ceremony, our new bells were rung to everyone’s joy, and a few tears.

A delicious banquet was prepared by Nenad Nikolic and his staff. And under the direction of Dr. Jelena Vukicevic, our teenagers and Kolo members served the filled-to-capacity hall with speed and efficiency.  The hall was beautifully decorated in autumn colors and flowers.
