On any given Sunday, in any Serbian Orthodox Church around the world, you'll hear acapella voices of choir members singing responses for Divine Liturgy.

Singers came from St. Louis, Indianapolis, Cudahy, Milwaukee, Chicago, Columbus, East Chicago, Joliet, and Hamilton, Canada. Under the direction of Mary Lou Suitca, they sang inspirational hymns of the Resurrection. Attending Clergy were Very Rev. Marko Matic, Very Rev. Bogdan Zjalic, Very Rev. Lazar Kostur, Deacon Nikolaj Kostur, and Deacon Nenad Jakovljevic.
