WARREN PARISH CELEBRATES CHURCH SLAVA


Warren, OH - His Grace Bishop Mitrophan of Eastern America made his first archpastoral visit to the small community of faithful Serbian Orthodox Christians in Warren, Ohio (formerly New Gracanica diocese) on Monday, August 2, 2010, the feastday of St. Elijah the Prophet, their church slava. Concelebrating with His Grace the bishop were Archimandrite Leontije (Alavanja), V. Rev. Djordje Mileusnic, Protonamesnik Milovan Katanic, Rev. Milan Pajic, Rev. Miladin Blagojevic and the parish adminstrator Rev. Dragan Goronjic. Also serving were deacons Ljubisa Mitrovic and Diocesan secretary Dragoslav Kosic.

In his homily the bishop applauded this community for celebrating their Slava on the actual feastday and not moving it to a nearby Sunday which is the norm for many of our parishes. He also spoke in length of the great faith of Elijah the prophet and the great role he played not only in Old Testament times but the one ascribed to him at the end times as well.

A festive Slava luncheon was served afterward in the church hall.
