Milwaukee, WI - On February 7, 2009, our St. Sava Serbian Orthodox School of Theology held its annual St. Sava celebration hosted by the St. Sava Cathedral in Milwaukee. The official celebration began with the Vespers service, celebrated by V. Rev. Dr. Milos Vesin. His Eminence Metropolitan of Midwestern America Christopher was present, together with a number of clergy and teaching staff. All the students of the School, some thirty of them, took active part in the service by beautifully singing the responses.
At the very end, I must say that it is somewhat a pity that more people did not come to see and enjoy the wonderful program, and take part in the spiritually uplifting event. Each year, another parish in the Chicagoland area hosts the St. Sava celebration of the School of Theology so that the student can meet their future parishioners, and that the people can become familiar with the mission and the life of the School. It is my hope that next year more people will get to enjoy this wonderful event and share in our joy. Finally, I would like to congratulate our St. Sava School of Theology staff and students on the successful St. Sava celebration and to wish them MANY YEARS in the service to Christ and His Church.
Rev. Vasilije Vranic,
Director of Religious Education, Metropolitanate of Midwest
