St. Nicholas Church Slava 2015
Saturday, July 11, 2015

Omaha, NE - With its centennial anniversary in sight, St. Nicholas Serbian Orthodox Church, Omaha, Nebraska, celebrated its ninety-eighth Slava on Sunday, May 17, 2015. This particular Slava observance will go down in the annals of St. Nicholas Church for several reasons, most notably for the magnanimous presence of His Grace, Bishop Sava, who with great personal sacrifice rearranged his schedule in order to visit the Omaha colony. Due to Sabor (Assembly of Bishops) which takes place every year during a month of May, in the Serbian capitol Belgrade, St. Nicholas Church in Omaha rarely has the honor of hosting its Bishop for its Church Slava - the Transfer Relics of St. Nicholas (May 22nd) Our Diocese, however, has been blessed by the presence of retired Bishop Sava, who now resides at New Gračanitca Monastery, and acts as Bishop Longin's extended arm by serving and visiting parishes within our vast Diocese.
