BISHOP MAXIM CELEBRATED BADNJE VECE IN SALT LAKE CITY

Оn Saturday, January 6, 2018, His Grace Bishop Maxim, together with neighboring clergy and many parishioners of the St. Archangel Michael Serbian Orthodox Church in Salt Lake City, celebrated Badnje Vece, the eve of the Nativity of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Following the beautiful Christmas Eve service,  everyone was ushered outside for the traditional lighting of the Badnjak, with each having the opportunity to break off a small twig to take to their own homes.  

The festivities continued in the church hall where a delicious lenten meal was served.  Both young and old were dressed in beautiful Serbian costume to celebrate this joyous occasion. Many small children huddled around His Grace Bishop Maxim, with great excitement, as he threw small sweets up in the air for all to catch and enjoy. 

It was a truly beautiful evening enjoyed by all who came to celebrate the birth of the christ-child, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. 

МИР БОЖЈИ – ХРИСТОС СЕ РОДИ! PEACE FROM GOD! CHRIST IS BORN!
