The Senior St. George Tromedja Folklore Group traveled to St. Petersburg during the weekend of May 11, 2013. We were warmly hosted by the folklore group at the St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church in St. Petersburg. The festival consisted of their dancers, which include children from surrounding parishes and some from the professional folklore, Talija, of Belgrade, Serbia, and our St. George Tromedja group. It was truly a spectacular show and we were SO PROUD of our St. George dancers and their fabulous performance! While everyone back in Schererville was still turning on their heat, we were able to enjoy some great Florida weather at the beach and pool! It was really an amazing weekend loved by ALL - our dancers and parents too! Please enjoy this video of our travels and the group's superb performance!
On Sunday, September 16th, our St. George Kolo celebrated their Krsna Slava, The Nativity of the Most Holy Mother of God. It was also the first day of Church School and Folklore. We had many faithful people and many children attend Divine Liturgy. Thank you to Bosiljka Raic, who brings a fresh vase of flowers for the altar table every Sunday. Prota Dobrivoje served in beautiful new red vestments that were donated in memory of kolo sister Dorothy Kovan. Prota Dobrivoje led the children in a prayer for the opening of a new Church School year and sprinkled them with holy water and dismissed them for religious classes. A memorial service was held to remember departed Kolo Sisters. Following Liturgy, everyone gathered in our church hall for the blessing of the slava kolac and enjoyed the slava luncheon. This year's kuma for the kolo slava was Sava Trivunovic who greeted all the guests together with her son Dragan Trivunovic. Tijana Samardzija was the Mistress of Ceremonies for the slava program. Prota Dobrivoje, our kolo president, Mara Dobrijevich, our Church Board President, Ray Vukas all greeted guests and thanked them for coming to celebrate with the kolo. They also thanked the kolo for their continued dedication. We would like to thank the parents for bringing their children to Church School! A new season of folklore also started and we have a nice group of children who will be dancing this year. Livija Kesic brought her American Girl doll with a Narodna Nosnja made to fit! Cute! We had a full day here at St. George last Sunday! Ziveli!
