In 1980, our dedicated members and parishioners erected a new magnificent church in Schererville, IN. Our parish priest is the V. Rev. Dobrivoje V. Milunovic. The interior of the church is beautified by the Serbo-Byzantine style frescoes painted by Mr. Miloje Milinkovic.

It was a spectacular and historical day for our St. George parish yesterday, October 28, 2012, as we celebrated the burning of the mortgage of our Halls of St. George. Our church was packed for a beautiful Hierarchical Divine Liturgy served by His Grace Bishop LONGIN, our host priest V. Rev. Dobrivoje Milunovic, guest priest V. Rev Bogdan Zajalic and Deacon Nikolaj Kostur. There was a nice group of Seminarians from St. Sava School of Theology who joined us and sang beautifully. Our BSL Choir and Children's Choir impressed everyone as always. After Liturgy, everyone gathered in the hall and our church president, Ray Vukas, held up a document that stated 2.9 million was PAID IN FULL! This document was joyfully burned in front the many guests as our parish no longer has a mortgage burden. Thank you to all of our parishioners who have given the time, efforts, love, donations and dedication for this huge accomplishment! Ziveli i Mnogaja Ljeta! Part 2 of Slide Show will be on the website soon.
