Rev. Stevan Stojsavljevic, V. Rev. Djuro Samac and V. Rev. Voja Pavlovic. The Stevan Mokranjac Choir, directed by Desa Gusa, sang the responses at the liturgy.
At the end of the Divine Liturgy, the bishop gave an inspiring homily on the gospel read on this 26th Sunday after Pentecost.
In the church hall, Bishop Mitrophan blessed the Slava kolach and zito. This year's kumovi were Daniel, Katarina and Nikola Radojevic.
