Veneration of the Holy Cross
Together as a parish we marked the third Sunday of the Great Lent as we celebrated the Veneration of the Holy Cross. The Cross is the symbol of victory of good over evil, life over death and eternal life over extinction. Orthodox Christians make extra efforts to be in church to venerate the cross to recieve courage and reassurance of God's continued grace. In Church School the children focus on the importance of why the cross is placed in the middle of the church during this third week of the Great Lent. The children made bookmarks with a cross on them and included the hymn dedicated to the Cross that we often sing in church. It has been a very instructural weekend, as Friday evening, Tijana Samardzija is preparing the children to sing for some upcoming lenten services, and during Serbian Language class, Predrag Mitrovic and Boro Raskovic had a fun lesson for the children about Nikola Tesla, since in most public schools recognize March as Science month, the children will be able to speak of a Serbian scientist, who forever changed the world.
Our Bishop Stefan Lastavica Choir hosted a Lenten Fish Fry after church. Thank you to all who came to support our Church Choir!
