    are proudly inviting you to 

    FIVE YEARS WITH GRACHANITSA
     

    Join us as we celebrate fifth anniversary of the renowned Serbian Folk Dance Ensemble Grachanitsa.

     GRACHANITSA Serbian Folk Dance Ensemble. Five years ago a group of folk enthusiasts from the Boston area started exploring the rich heritage of folk dancing and music from different parts of the former Yugoslavia. Its members hail from the Balkan region, the United States, Canada, and France. Today, and some 30 performances later, Grachanitsa has become known throughout the Northeast for its original choreographies, elaborate costumes, perfected style and attention to detail.

    An evening of dance and music will include performances of Grachanitsa and their special guests:

    • Kolo Serbian Folk Dance Ensemble of Hamilton, Canada
    • Children's Ensemble of St. Sava Church

    Kolo Serbian Folklore Ensemble was formed in 1969 in Hamilton, Canada as an integral part of "St. Nicholas" Serbian Orthodox Church on Barton Street. Ensemble has performed in many North American cities, from Ottawa to San Diego, and Edmonton to Cincinnati achieving over 800 performances. These include performances at Commonweath Games (Edmonton), Canadian National Exhibition (Toronto), Canada Festival (Ottawa), Slavic Festivals at the Lincoln Center in New York City, and a US/Canada/Australia Folk Fest in Sand Diego. It prides itself on the perpetuation of authentic choreography and costume design, and most importantly, on the preservation of Serbian ethnic heritage.

     Evening includes live entertainment and a dance party following the concert.

    Ethnic appetizers and desserts will be served.

    Tickets at the door. Adults $25, Children under 12 free

An Introduction to Great Lent by Fr Alexander Schmemann

Excerpts from Fr Alexander Schmemann's Great Lent


When a man leaves on a journey, he must know where he is going. Thus with Lent. Above all, Lent is a spiritual journey and its destination is Easter, "the Feast of Feasts." It is the preparation for the "fulfillment of Pascha, the true Revelation." We must begin, therefore, by trying to understand this connection between Lent and Easter, for it reveals something very essential, very crucial about our Christian faith and life.

Is it necessary to explain that Easter is much more than one of the feasts, more than a yearly commemoration of a past event? Anyone who has, be it only once, taken part in that night which is "brighter than the day," who has tasted of that unique joy, knows it. [...] On Easter we celebrate Christ's Resurrection as something that happened and still happens to us. For each one of us received the gift of that new life and the power to accept it and live by it. It is a gift which radically alters our attitude toward everything in this world, including death. It makes it possible for us to joyfully affirm: "Death is no more!" Oh, death is still there, to be sure, and we still face it and someday it will come and take us. But it is our whole faith that by His own death Christ changed the very nature of death, made it a passage — a "passover," a "Pascha" — into the Kingdom of God, transforming the tragedy of tragedies into the ultimate victory. [...]

Such is that faith of the Church, affirmed and made evident by her countless Saints. Is it not our daily experience, however, that this faith is very seldom ours, that all the time we lose and betray the "new life" which we received as a gift, and that in fact we live as if Christ did not rise from the dead, as if that unique event had no meaning whatsoever for us? [...] We simply forget all this — so busy are we, so immersed in our daily preoccupations — and because we forget, we fail. And through this forgetfulness, failure, and sin, our life becomes "old" again — petty, dark, and ultimately meaningless — a meaningless journey toward a meaningless end. [...] We may from time to time acknowledge and confess our various "sins," yet we cease to refer our life to that new life which Christ revealed and gave to us. Indeed, we live as if He never came. This is the only real sin, the sin of all sins, the bottomless sadness and tragedy of our nominal Christianity.

If we realize this, then we may understand what Easter is and why it needs and presupposes Lent. For we may then understand that the liturgical traditions of the Church, all its cycles and services, exist, first of all, in order to help us recover the vision and the taste of that new life which we so easily lose and betray, so that we may repent and return to it. [...] And yet the "old" life, that of sin and pettiness, is not easily overcome and changed. The Gospel expects and requires from man an effort of which, in his present state, he is virtually incapable. [...] This is where Great Lent comes in. This is the help extended to us by the Church, the school of repentance which alone will make it possible to receive Easter not as mere permission to eat, to drink, and to relax, but indeed as the end of the "old" in us, as our entrance into the "new." [...] For each year Lent and Easter are, once again, the rediscovery and the recovery by us of what we were made through our own baptismal death and resurrection.

A journey, a pilgrimage! Yet, as we begin it, as we make the first step into the "bright sadness" of Lent, we see — far, far away — the destination. It is the joy of Easter, it is the entrance into the glory of the Kingdom. And it is this vision, the foretaste of Easter, that makes Lent's sadness bright and our lenten effort a "spiritual spring." The night may be dark and long, but all along the way a mysterious and radiant dawn seems to shine on the horizon. "Do not deprive us of our expectation, O Lover of man!"

Glory be to God!

Подсећање на НАТО бомбардовање

ПОДСЕЋАЊЕ НА НАТО БОМБАРДОВАЊЕ СРЈ
24. МАРТ 1999 – 24. МАРТ 2007. ГОДИНЕ

НАТО бомбардовање Савезне Републике Југославије (названа Операција Савезничка сила), често под називом "НАТО агресија" трајало је од 24. марта до 10. јуна 1999. године и део је косовског рата 1996-1999. То је било друго важније војно уплитање НАТО-а после бомбардовања босанских Срба у операција "Намерна сила" 1995. године и највећи војни сукоб на простору Србије и Црне Горе од времена Другог светског рата.

НАТО је 24. марта 1999. године у 20 часова почео ваздушне нападе на војне циљеве у СРЈ да би се касније удари проширили и на привредне и цивилне објекте. У нападима који су без прекида трајали 78 дана тешко су оштећени инфраструктура, привредни објекти, школе, здравствене установе, медијске куће, споменици културе, цркве, манастири...

Економски експерти проценили су штету на око 30 милијарди долара. Коначан број жртава званично није саопштен, а процене се крећу између 1.200 и 2.500 погинулих и око 5.000 рањених.

Напади су суспендовани 10. јуна, после потписивања војно-техничког споразума о повлачењу југословенске војске и полиције са Косова и Метохије.

Мотиви за НАТО бомбардовање СРЈ су многобројни. Пре свега, НАТО је захтевао оружану интервенцију из тог разлога, што кроз Савет безбедности УН нису успеле да издејствују одлуку за оружану интервенцију у СРЈ због противљења Кине и Русије, сталних чланица са правом вета.

Из тог разлога, НАТО се одлучио на самосталну оружану интервенцију, наводећи као разлог да је делегација Југославије одбила да потпише понуђени споразум у Рамбујеу. Понуђеним споразумом је озбиљно угрожаван суверенитет СР Југославије: захтеван је улазак НАТО трупа на Косово и Метохију и њихово слободно кретање целокупном територијом СРЈ, и предвиђан референдум о самоопредељењу на Косову и Метохији кроз 3 године чији би резултати били ”значајан фактор” у одлучи о коначном статусу. Многи посматрачи су овај споразум оценили као ултиматум за који се унапред знало да га делегација Југославије не може потписати.

Као разлог за рат 1999. године представљена је заштита Албанаца на Косову и Метохији од етничког цисцења, како наводног дугорочног тако и акутног често описиваног термином ”хуманитарна катастрофа”. Масовно бекство албанског становништва из јужне српске покрајине започело тек неколико дана после почетка бомбардовања.

Генерални секретар НАТО Хавијер Солана 24. марта 1999. године у око 19.30 часова, само десетак минута после полетања већег броја авиона из базе НАТО у италијанском граду Авијану, објавио је да су започели ваздушни напади против војних циљева у СРЈ. Бомбардовање је трајало укупно 77 дана.

Последњи гађани циљ на Косову и Метохији била је касарна у Урошевцу, на коју је у среду, 10. јуна око 19.35 сати испаљено пет пројектила. "После тога није било напада, већ само прелетање авиона НАТО над Косовом и Метохијом", рекао је дежурни у покрајинском центру за обавештавање.

Кумановски споразум је војно-технички споразум између Међународних безбедносних снага ("КФОР") и влада Савезне Републике Југославије и Републике Србије.

Стране овог Споразума потврђују документ који је фински председник Ахтисари поднео, а уједно га одобрава и Народна скупштина Србије и Савезна влада СРЈ 3. јуна 1999. године. Споразум укључује размештање око 45.000 војника на Косову и Метохији, махом из земаља НАТО а под покровитељством Уједињених нација, ефикасног међународног цивилног и безбедносног присуства. Стране даље констатују да је Савет безбедности спреман да усвоји резолуцију која је у поступку, у вези са овим присуствима.

У нападима на СР Југославију НАТО снаге користиле су око хиљаду летелица (ловци, ловци-бомбардери, бомбардери, шпијунски авиони итд.), односно скоро цео НАТО савез (осим Исланда и Луксембурга - који немају ваздушне снаге, и Грчке, која није учествовала у бомбардовању). У списак не улазе ни Мађарска, Чешка Република и Пољска које су се тек придружиле НАТО-у и нису још чиниле део војног апарата, мада је пред крај рата на Космет послата нпр. и чешко-пољска болница. Највећу војну заступљеност имале су Сједињене Америчке Државе, мада су и остале чланице имале немалу улогу у агресији.

У бомбардовању је погунуло око 2.000 цивила. Највише погинулих било је у нападима на путнички воз код Грделице 12. априла (11), на колону албанских избеглица на Косову 14. априла (75), на зграду РТС-а у Београду 23. априла (16), на Сурдулицу 28. априла (16), на путнички аутобус код места Лужани 1. маја (23), на Ниш касетним бомбама 7. маја (20), и на крају најтежи напад на цивиле, 14. маја на другу колону албанских избеглица крај Призрена, са 87 мртвих. Напад који је добио највећу медијску пажњу био је напад 8. маја на амбасаду Народне Републике Кине у Београду, који је изазвао велику дипломатску напетост између влада те државе и САД-а. У том су нападу убијена три кинеска службеника амбасаде. НАТО савез је ову наводну грешку оправдао ”застарелим мапама”. У Србији се до 1999. регистровало између 15.000 и 20.000 нових случајева канцера, да би тај број већ 2004. достигао цифру од 30.000 нових болесника.

Према званицним информацијама, губици у редовима НАТО били су релативно ниски, највише због неиспуњавања претње копненом операцијом. Осим неких присилних слетања неколико оштећених авиона Ф-15, британског Херјера и једног А-10 са рањеним пилотом у Сарајеву и Скопљу, губици су следећи: 27. марта Југословенска ПВО срушила амерички "невидљиви" бомбардер Ф-117 Ноћни соко, што је прво обарање таквог авиона стелт технологије. Пилот спашен 6 сати после обарања; 26. априла у Албанији пао амерички хеликоптер АХ-64 Апач, током тренажне мисије. Двојица пилота повредена; 1. маја пао амерички АВ-8Б Харијер услед механичког квара при слетању на носач авиона. Пилот спасен; 2. маја амерички Ф-16 срушен западно од Београда. Пилот спасен; 5. маја у Албанији пао амерички хеликоптер АХ-64 Апач. Двојица пилота погинула; осим ових губитака, треба додати обарања неколико десетина беспилотних летелица (УАВ) и крстарећих пројектила.

MERIMA NJEGOMIR

U svojoj prebogatoj pevačkoj karijeri osvojila je 20 prvih nagrada na raznim festivalima u zemlji. Za pevačicu godine je izabrana 1993. i 1996. godine. Snimila je 24 albuma, i preko 100 trajnih snimaka izvornih pesama za Radio Beograd. Dobitnik je estradne nagrade Srbije čime je stekla status estradnog umetnika.
LJUBISA PAVKOVIC, rodjen 14. juna 1947. u Beogradu, poceo je da svira jos od svoje pete godine. Velika ljubav prema harmonici i neverovatan dar odmah su poceli da se ispoljavaju. Od ranog detinjstva prepusta se muzici i muzickom stvaralastvu, predano, dosledno i casno, sve do danas na vrhuncu svoje umetnicke i licne zrelosti. Nazivaju ga balkanskim i srpskim genijem nacionalne muzike. Dobivsi na poklon od svog oca harmoniku, nije se od nje odvajao. Neprestano je svirao tragajuci, mozda nesvesno, za svojim stilom. U njegovoj muzici oseca se prava sustina srpskog naroda, a to je duboka teznja za lepim, radost zivljenja, dostojanstvo... Kao osamnaestogodisnjak obreo se u KUD "Vukica Mitrovic" koje je rasadnik mladih talenata. Na Medjunarodnom festivalu u Dizonu, 1966. godine, u konkurenciji ucesnika iz 25 zemalja, osvaja prvo mesto kao solista na harmonici. Zatim sledi smotra poznatih solista na Medjunarodnom festivalu podunavskih zemalja, pa festival u Amsterdamu, gde je predstavnik Radio - Beograda. Nosilac Estradne nagrade Srbije, Statusa istaknutog umetnika, godisnje nagrade Radio - Beograda 1991. godine, kao i mnogih drugih nagrada na festivalima i smotrama. Na svim ovim festivalima ucestvovao je kao zreo muzicar i umetnik, jer je jos 1970. godine postao clan Narodnog orkestra RTB-a, a 1981. sef istog orkestra, nastavljajuci tradiciju Vlastimira Pavlovica Carevca, Miodraga Jasarevica i Bozidara Milosevica Bokija. Vrsni je poznavalac ne samo srpske i jugoslovenske vec i muzike balkanskih naroda. Bavi se pedagoskim radom u Narodnom orkestru, a i van njega. Mnogi njegovi ucenici osvojili su prve nagrade na poznatim festivalima. Snimio je stotinak prelepih pesama za potrebe Radio - Beograda, kao i vise ploca sa svojim kolima. Ljubisa Pavkovic je mnogo izucavao balkanski folklor, iznalazio resenja, otkrivao tajne i danas vlada takvim znanjem da sam po sebi predstavlja muzicku instituciju. Njegova harmonika ne svira, ona jednostavno peva i vodi nas kroz predivne pejzaze Srbije i Balkana.

Dokumentarni Film

U pocetku Bese Rec-Dokumentarni film

Junak ovog dokumentarnog filma je Miroslavljevo jevandjelje, najstariji sacuvani srpski cirilicni rukopis, pisan u prvoj cetvrtini XII veka za humskog kneza Miroslava, starijeg brata Simeona Nemanje, rukopis je, koji po svojoj lepoti, nema premca medju sacuvanim pravoslavnim jevandjelistarima.
Kroz dokumentarni serijal od cetiri epizode osvetljava se jedinstvena sudbina ovog rukopisa-od njegovog nastanka u danasnjem Bijelom Polju, preko osnivanja manastira Hilandar, ukradenog lista koji je dospeo u imperatorsku biblioteku u Petrogradu i proneo glas o prelepom srpskom rukopisu, nacinu na koji je rukopis stigao u ruke kralja Aleksandra Obrenovica i misterioznom nestanku u noci kada je izvrsen majski prevrat, pronalasku i posebnoj paznji koja mu je posvecena tokom povlacenja srpske vojske preko Albanije, ponovnom nestanku, tokom II svetskog rata, pa sve do savremenih dogadjaja: puta koji je orginal Miroslavljevog jevandjelja presao od podruma Narodnog Muzeja u Beogradu, do specijalne klima komore, posebnih cuvara i upisa u registar "Pamcenje sveta" UNESCO-a.
Brojna predstavljanja na vodecim svetskim TV stanicama (ABC, NBC, CBS...), kao i nedavna odluka UNESCO, da najlepsi srpski cirilicni rukopis uvrsti u katalog svetske kulturne bastine, podstakli su autore da naprave filmsku pricu koja ce postati dostupna najsiroj domacoj i svetskoj javnosti.

In 1985, Anthony Antolini rediscovered an unusual Liturgy written by Sergei Rachmaninoff in 1910.  The work was deemed too liturgically unorthodox for its day in Russia and had fallen into obscurity in subsequent decades, while Rachmaninoff himself escaped the cultural and political turmoil of his beloved homeland to make a living in America as a concert pianist.  Antolini was able to piece the work back together from disparate sources and then taught the twenty-movement Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom for unaccompanied chorus to his community choir in California and took it on tour.  Under Antolini’s direction, the Liturgy has since been taken to cities in the United States and Canada and to Russian cities from St. Petersburg across Siberia to the Russian Far East.  In 2006, twenty years after its American premier, a combined group of members of Down East Singers, Bowdoin College Chorus and some who sang on the Liturgy’s first tour in 1986 toured the San Francisco Bay Area.

                                                                                                                                                 St. Vasilios Greek Orthodox Church in Peabody, Massachusetts, invited Antolini to bring this Liturgy to their church as a part of their centennial celebrations in 2006; and consequently Antolini’s Rachmaninoff Festival Choir sang the Liturgy at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Annunciation in March 2007 to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the consecration of Metropolitan Methodios as bishop.

 

For those interested in learning more, a documentary made for public television describing Antolini’s discovery of the Rachmaninoff Liturgy and its first tour to the USSR in 1987-88 is available for purchase.  A re-release of the CD recording of the work made in 1996 is also available. The recording received critical acclaim in the November 1996 American Record Guide.

 

The Rachmaninoff Festival Choir combines members of the Down East Singers and the Bowdoin College Chorus, both located in mid-coast Maine. The choir has performed in many Maine venues as well as in Middlebury, Vermont,  New Haven, St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City, Montreal, Baltimore, The National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., and Grace Cathedral in San Francisco.

 

Anthony Antolini was appointed Music Director of Down East Singers in 1991 and joined the Bowdoin faculty in 1992. He graduated from Bowdoin College and holds graduate degrees from Stanford University. At Bowdoin College he conducts the Bowdoin Chorus and teaches music theory. In 1988 he published the first modern, bilingual edition of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom. His award-winning television documentary on this subject, Rediscovering Rachmaninoff, has been broadcast on public television nationally. His editions of choral music are published by E.C. Schirmer and Paraclete Press. Antolini is currently at work on a new bilingual performance edition of Igor Stravinsky’s Les Noces/Svàdebka/The Village Wedding to be published by E.C. Schirmer. In 1999 he was a featured speaker at the national convention of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) and in 2000 at the ACDA convention in Baltimore. He was elected “Conductor of the Year” by the Maine Chapter of ACDA for the 1999-2000 season. In February 2008 he is a featured speaker at the Eastern Division Convention of the ACDA where he presented a lecture entitled “Greek-American Choral Repertoire: An Undiscovered Treasure.”

Lewis Patsavos

Professor of Canon Law and Director of Field Education

Lic ThUniversity of Athens
ThDUniversity of Athens


Dr. Lewis J. Patsavos is Professor of Canon Law and Director of Field Education at Holy Cross School of Theology, where he began his fulltime teaching career in 1974. The dual responsibility of teaching Orthodox Canon Law and directing the School's Field Education Program has enabled him to experience the pastoral nature of the canons contextually through theological field education. As a result, he has focused his attention upon the need to integrate theory and praxis towards a holistic approach to the study of theology. His interest in the Canonical Tradition of Orthodoxy reflected in his writings, most recently the publication Spiritual Dimensions of the Holy Canons (2003), lies in the following: the interface of the canons and pastoral theology; the proper application of the canons as an authentic expression of Orthodox theology; and the engagement of clergy and laity in the practice of ministry appropriate to each. He serves as Consultant on Canonical Affairs to the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese and to other Orthodox Jurisdictions in America. His commitment to ecumenical dialogue has allowed him to participate for over twenty-five years in the North American Orthodox - Roman Catholic Bilateral Consultation. His current focus is on completion of the book Qualifications of Entry into the Clergy, which embodies the theory of the canons about priesthood and the praxis of ministry experienced in contextual education.

Saint Sava Sets Goal of Raising $50,000 for Structural Improvements

In our first two years in Cambridge we set the focus of our capital raising campaigns to paying off the mortgage as quickly as possible.  We were able to raise enough to pay off a quarter of our total mortgage ($250,000), a great achievement.  In 2008 we must shift our focus to structural improvements of our facilities and grounds.  The Annual Assembly of Saint Sava approved budgeting $50,000 toward this endeavor on February 10th.  The Church Board of Saint Sava would like to help all parishioners understand exactly why we need to raise these funds.

There is one major project which will happen over the next year.  This is the replacement of the boiler for the church heating system.  The current system was installed in  decades ago and is reaching the end of its useful life.  We have already had a couple of close calls this winter but made it through without a serious incident. Fortunately, the distribution system was updated during the hall renovation in 2001 and does not need to be replaced. We have already called in a few companies to competitively bid on the project. The first of these companies returned us an estimate of $56,000.  This involves removing the old boiler and replacing it with two smaller boilers, so that we can heat the church and the hall independent of one another.  This would be a more efficient way to heat the building and would provide long-term cost savings.

There are a few other repairs that are necessary.  We need to replace the sidewalk on the north side of the church.  This repair is required by our insurance company or we may loose our policy.  We also need to make roof repairs, replace downspouts, and repair sections of the church outer walls.  We can’t do these repairs without your financial support.  As is evident from the long list repairs, our goal of $50,000 is very modest and may not address all these issues.

Few pictures that illustrate what we have to repair can be viewed here.

Црква Св. Саве има циљ да прикупи $50.000 за поправку црквеног имања.

За прве две године у Кембриџу, концентрисали смо се на прикупљање средстава како би што пре отплатили хипотеку. Успели смо да сакупимо и отплатимо четвртину целокупне суме ($250,000), што је веома велики успех. У 2008. години морамо да променимо фокуса на неопходне попоправке црквеног имања. На годишњој скупшитини у цркви Св. Саве  10. фебруара, одобрен је буџет у износу од $50.000 како би се наведено остварило.  Црквени одбор Св. Саве би желео да сви парохијани разумеју зашто нам је неопходно да прикупимо ова средства.

Планиран је један значајан пројекат који ће се остварити током ове године, а који се односи на замену котла за грејање. Постојећи систем који је инсталиран пре  неколико деценија достигао је крај свог корисног живота. Ове зиме смо имали неколико кварова у котларници али је, на срећу, све прошло без озбиљних последица и веће материјалне штете. На нашу срећу, разводни систем је поправљен 2001. године и нећемо морати да издвајамо новац и за то. Контактирали смо неколико компанија како би од њих добили понуде за извођење неопходних радова. Прва понуда коју смо добили је била око $56,000. Ова понуда укључује замену старог котла са два мања.. Нови котлови су доста ефикаснији од оног који сада имамо па ћемо овако смањити трошкове грејања у будућности..

Поред овог највећег пројекта и неколико других поправки је неопходно. Морамо да поправимо тротоар иза цркве. Ову поправку захтева наша осигуравајућа компанија, у супротном можемо да изгубимо право на полису осигурања. Такође, потребно је да поправимо кров изнад црквених канцеларија, заменимо неке олуке и поправимо делове зидовова. Нисмо у могућности да ово урадимо без ваше финансијске помоћи. Када погледате листу ствари које морамо да урадимо схватате да је наш циљ да прикупимо $50.000  веома скроман и можда нам неће омогућити да урадимо све што је потребно. Стога вас позивамо да нам се придружите 31. маја 2008. на донаторској вечери како би успели да прикупимо потребна средства.

За неколико фотографија које илуструју  шта морамо поправити кликните овде.

Materice/ Mothers day

In Serbian tradition Mother's Day is called "Materice", and it is observed two weeks before Christmas. On "Materice" boys and girls tiptoe into their mother's bedroom very early in the morning and tie her up. When she awakens, she is surprised to find herself all tied up, and she begs the children to untie her, promising to give them little gifts which she has hidden under her pillow.

To all mothers we wish a happy Mother's day.

Представа ,,Само да знаш колико те волим\

Драги пријатељи,

Српска православна црква Свети Сава, у сарадњи са организацијом АРТ011,  Вас позива на позоришно вече у сали цркве Свети Сава у Кембриџу
Комедија “Само да знаш колико те волим”, рађена је по делима (збиркама новела) познатог италијанског писца Антонија Амура “Како убити супругу и зашто” и “Како убити супруга без сувишних зашто”.
Реч је о сценски уобличеном духовитом промишљању мушко-женских односа из различитих углова. Више мушких (стварних и могућих) ликова из нашег времена тумачи Миленко Павлов, а неколико женских јунакиња игра Љиљана Ђурић.
Драматизацију потписује Душко Анђић, који напомиње да је познати италијански писац у наведеним књигама забележио низ својих размишљања која током брачног заједништва, поготово ако је оно дугачко и досадно, људима падају на памет. Костимографију и сценографију потписује Ружица Ристић, а избор музике Владимир Рацковић.
Не пропустите јединствену прилику да видите великане српског позоришта

После Литургије велики број верника је остао на заједничком васкршњем ручку. Ове године је више него раније велики број деце  био присутан на Васкрс. Погледајте фото репортажу овде.

+ Metropolitan Christopher


METROPOLITAN CHRISTOPHER OF LIBERTYVILLE-CHICAGO, FELL ASLEEP IN THE LORD


Chicago, IL - At 7:45 this evening, Wedesday, August 18, 2010, on the eve of the feast of the Transfiguration of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, His Eminence +Christopher, Metropolitan of Libertyville-Chicago, fell asleep in the Lord at the age of 82. Clergy are asked to serve a small pomen at tomorrow's Divine Liturgy.

May His memory be eternal. 

Born in Galveston, Texas, and baptized Velimir Kovacevich, the future Metropolitan Christopher was the ninth of twelve children of Serbian immigrant parents. After graduation from high school, he attended Nashotah House and graduated from St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Seminary in Libertyville, Illinois. After marriage, he was ordained to the Diaconate and Priesthood. Continuing his education, he earned a B.A. (Philosophy), Master of Letters (History) at the University of Pittsburgh; the Master of Divinity from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Brookline, Massachusetts, and completed courses and examinations for the doctorate at the Chicago Theological Seminary.

 Father Velimir ministered to parishes in Pennsylvania and in Chicago, also serving as chaplain to four universities. He assisted his parishes to become bilingual in their worship and education programs. As a priest, he served as spiritual father, counselor, youth worker, administrator, educator, and, above all, in priestly ministry at the Holy Altar. Widowed in 1970, he is the father of four, as well as the grandfather of nine.

Elevated to the episcopate in 1978 by the Assembly of Bishops in Belgrade and tonsured with the monastic name of Christopher, he became the first American-born bishop to serve a diocese of his church in North America. As Bishop of Eastern America and Canada, he soon developed a diocesan-wide program in religious education. Active also in ecumenism, he has served on the joint commission of Orthodox and Roman Catholic bishops and on the Orthodox-Lutheran dialogue, and has represented his church at high levels in both the National and World Councils of Churches. In 1991, he was elevated to the rank of Metropolitan, thereby becoming Primate of the Serbian Orthodox Church in the U.S. and Canada.

May the Lord our God grant blessed repose and eternal rest to His Eminence Metropolitan Christopher.

Представа ПЕТРИЈИН ВЕНАЦ

    Српска православна црква Свети Сава, у сарадњи са организацијом АРТ011, Вас позива на позоришно вече у сали цркве Свети Сава у Кембриџу.
    Представа је настала драматизацијом истоименог чувеног романа Драгослава Михајловића по коме је снимљен и филм. Кроз комичне и трагичне ситуације, говори о животу неписмене али изузетно интелигентне сеоске жене. И поред силних трагедија које су је задесиле, она налази снаге да нас насмеје и да нам на најлепши могући начин пренесе поруку да живот увек побеђује.
    Режија: Душко Анђић; Музика: Вања Пилиповић; Драматизовала и игра: Љиљана Ђурић.
    Представа је у децембру 2006. године на фестивалу малих форми у Источном Сарајеву добила награду као најбоља представа. Београдска премијера је одржана 14. марта 2007. године. Скупштина града Београда је финансирала и подржала овај пројекат. На Међународном театарском фестивалу у Москви, 8. децембра 2007. године, представа је награђена Сребрним витезом.

ICON EXHIBIT

It was yet another traditional frescoe exhibit of the students of the Serbian Orthodox Church Academy for the Arts and Preservation of Professor Goran Janicijevic. Thanks to the efforts of parish priest V. Rev. Aleksandar Vlajkovic and the Boston parishioners, this exhibit was made possible for the first time in Boston, after being in Belgrade and Munich.

The exhibit was formally opened on Friday, June 30, 2006 as Fr. Aleksandar Vlajkovic welcomed the guests from Serbia. Afterwards, Professor Goran Janicijevic spoke of the Academy of the Serbian Orthodox Church, of the exhibit dedicated to Kosovo and Metohija as well as the efforts of the students and professors of the Academy in the field of iconography, renovation and preservation of frescoes. Finally, Mrs. Silvana Hadzi Djokic spoke of the work in renovating the destroyed and damaged churches and monasteries in Kosovo and Metohija and the efforts taken by both the Serbian Church and State. As the representative of the Ministry of Culture of the Government of the Serbian Republic Mrs. Hadzi Djokic answered many questions after her lecture. Following the lecture the Boston parishioners were able to view the exhibit and speak with the professors about contemporary Serbian iconography.

The dean of the Academy, Protojerej-Stavrophor Radomir Popovic served Vespers on Saturday evening. On Sunday Fr. Radomir and Fr. Zeljko Djuric con-celebrated with Fr. Aleksandar at the Divine Liturgy. A parastos for all Serbian soldiers since the Kosovo Battle was served following liturgy. Fr. Zeljko Djuric spoke of the necessity of knowing the theological significance of the Kosovo Testament and cited the Gospel text that was directly connnected with it.

Following the service Fr. Radomir gave a lecture in the church hall on the history of the Serbian Orthodox Church with special mention of the Battle of Kosovo and the period of Turkish rule on Serbian lands. Fr. Radomir spoke of the martyrdom of Prince Lazar and the Serbian nation all of which he tied with the Christ's suffering and His resurrection. At the end of the lecture, Fr. Radomir mentioned that the answer of contemporary Christians to the challenges of this day must be evangelical since Christ is the same yesterday, today and unto all the ages of ages.

The representatives of the Academy are grateful to their hosts Fr. Aleksandar Vlajkovic, his Protinica Vera and the entire Boston parish for their Christian welcome and hospitality.

The frescoe exhibit is moving to New York where it will formally open on the Feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, Friday, July 7, 2006 and last until Sunday, July 9th.

PRESIDENT OF SERBIA BORIS TADIC VISITS BOSTON PARISH


Boston, MA - The first annual Serbian festival in New England was held on Saturday, September 23, 2006 hosted by the St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church in Cambridge, MA. The goal of the festival was to present to our American friends and neighbors the Serbian culture and tradition through folklore, music, art and the traditional Serbian foods. This was the first festival of this kind in New England. The highlight of the celebration was a visit by President of Serbia Boris Tadic together with the Ambassador Ivan Vujacic from Washington D.C. This visit came after President Tadic’s participation at the General Assembly of the UN and a lecture at Harvard Universtiy on Friday evening.

Upon his arrival President Tadic first visited the church where he was greeted by young girls dressed in traditional costumes that offered him bread and salt, welcoming him. President Tadic and Ambassador Vujacic were interested in the details of the church, which was purchased just ten months ago from the Roman Catholic Church. Fr. Aleksandar and Milica Pogorzelski, Church Board president, gave the esteemed guests a tour of the church and answered their questions.

Afterward, the guests went through the exhibit of icons and frescoes in the parish hall, the work of the students of the Academy of the Serbian Orthodox Church for Iconography and Conservation from
Belgrade. The icons are replicas of the frescoes that had been destroyed during the Pogrom in Kosovo in 2003.

President Tadic was led by his hosts to the tent area where he was welcomed with thunderous applause from the parishioners of St. Sava, together with their American friends. Fr. Aleksandar began with a prayer and afterwards, on behalf of the Church Board and all of his parishioners, greeted their prominent guests and called on the president to formally open the festival.

In his address, President Tadic said, among other things: “It is a great pleasure for me to open a Serbian festival in
America. This is the first time it has happened to me. Yesterday I had the opportunity to talk with our students, following the presentation that the president of Croatia and I had at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. I would like for my stay in Massachusetts and in America in general to be such to improve your life here, and in some way, to live better.

“You know very well that today we are met with very difficult challenges. However, this does not mean, despite all of our difficulties, that we should cease organizing festivals and celebrating. It is of great importance that we do everything in our power to preserve our community and respect our customs...

“On the other hand, I would like to reiterate that which I said to our students at Harvard yesterday, which is that
Serbia today is a land of great opportunity. Despite all of our many hardships I want to believe that Serbia is a land of great opportunity.”

At the end of his address President Tadic proclaimed the festival to be opened. Afterwards, he spent some time with his countrymen that live here, far from their homeland. The Serbian atmosphere was all the more present through the music of the brass band Zlatne Uste from
New York. Before departing President Tadic requested they play Tamo Daleko one more time, which they did happily.

Finally the prominent guests bid farewell to their gracious hosts and continued their travels, going to Wentworth Institute of Technology where they were greeted by Dr. Zorica Pantic, the President of this esteemed institution, and in the evening they returned to Serbia.

To the delight of all the parishioners the festival lasted until late in the evening. It was nice to see such a large number of our youth and the children for whom there were special activities. It was noticed how our young Serbian boys and girls proudly wore their Serbian sajkace (hats) which were brought from
Serbia for this occasion. The folklore group Gracanica performed in the evening. This was the first festival and it is our desire and hope that each one in the future, with God’s help, be better and more successful.

Protojerej Aleksandar Vlajkovic

St. Sava Celebration in Boston parish

Boston - St. Sava was celebrated throughout the Eastern American Diocese.  Especially festive was the celebration in Boston and Cleveland where His Grace Bishop Mitrofan served the Divine Liturgy. The patron saint for both the Boston and Cleveland churches is St. Sava. On the eve of the Feast of St. Sava, a Great Vespers service took place in the Boston parish (Cambridge). Four priests, including one monk from Greece, served in the presence of Bishop Mitrofan.  His Grace greeted the faithful people at the end of the Service.

On the actual day of St. Sava, His Grace Bishop Mitrofan together with eight other clergy celebrated the Divine Liturgy.  Besides Serbian priests there were clergy from the Greek, Romanian, Bulgarian, Georgian and Antiochian jurisdictions. During the Liturgy, Bishop Mitrofan awarded Fr. Ivan Marjanovic from the Portland parish with a rank of Protopresbyter for his many years of service. At the conclusion of the Liturgy, the Slava bread was blessed in the presence of many children and Slava kumovi, Zivadin and Borka Gvozdenovic and their children Dusan and Bojana..

In his sermon, Bishop Mitrofan emphasized the importance and greatness of St. Sava. He mentioned the recent attacks on St. Sava in the newspapers in Serbia.  Namely, an author of a text wrote that St. Sava wanted himself to become an Archbishop, ignoring historical facts that he took with him several monks and suggested that one of them becomes an Archbishop. Also, he accused St. Sava that he established the Serbian church for the Serbian elite, which is very far from the truth. The Bishop stressed that St. Sava is not only a Serbian Saint but a pan orthodox saint, and is loved and respected by other nations, which is confirmed by the presence of clergy and laity from other Orthodox jurisdictions at the Liturgy.

 After a festive lunch that was prepared by the kumovi, a children’s program followed, consisting of poems, songs and folklore. For the first time in the Boston parish, a St. Sava play was performed by the children, written by Fr. Radovan Jakovljevic. This play depicts young Rastko Nemanjic who departs for Mount Athos and becomes monk. About three hundred faithful participated in honoring St. Sava in the Boston parish.

In the evening His Grace departed from Boston and the next day, January 28, he took part in St.Sava celebration in Cleveland.

SUNDAY OF ORTHODOXY IN BOSTON AREA


The annual Sunday of Orthodoxy Vespers Service, organized by the Orthodox Clergy Association of Greater Boston, took place on Sunday, February 25, at 5:00 p.m., at St. Athanasius the Great Greek Orthodox Church in Arlington.

The Pan-Orthodox Service led by over 30 clergy was attended by about 400 faithful, one of the largest gatherings for Sunday of Orthodoxy in the Boston area in recent years. A Pan-Orthodox Choir, including members from the St. Sava Choir, sang the responses beautifully.

The highlight of the celebratory service was the clergy's procession with icons around the church and the reading of the proclamation by the Ecumenical Council of 843 which ended the iconoclastic controversy and restored icons and their veneration in the Church. Because this historically took place on the first Sunday of Lent, that Sunday is now commemorated as the "triumph of Orthodoxy." St. Athanasius Church hosted the Vespers Service in their new church home and generously held a Lenten dinner reception following the Service. About half a dozen St. Sava parishioners attended the Service.

WORLD-FUSION-BALKAN-ETHNIC-GUITAR MUSIC

Trio Balkan Strings

Zoran Starcevic & sons: Nikola and Zeljko

     The guitar family, from BelgradeSerbia, performs its original instrumental music, a fusion of many Balkan elements: Serbian, Gypsy, Macedonian, Romanian, Moldavian, Bulgarian, Mediterranean, Greek, Oriental…including some Jazz improvisations and classical elements. The result, combining many cultures, is rich and unconventional, fresh and spontaneous, brimming with energy. They has performed in many Jazz, Classical Guitar, World music festivals and concerts in: Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia, Italy, Poland, Hungary, Turkey, Russia, USA…They did master classes-clinics and concerts for classical and Jazz guitar students in Europe and in the USA. One of them was at NYU - New York University.

Cooperation with Festivals, Schools, musicians and Jazz clubs is continuing in 2007 on USA tour ( Boston, New York, Chicago, Portland, Scharlotte, Washington...), and in Europe also.

First prize winner - Music World 2004 - Fivizzano-Italy - The best instrumental ensemble

First prize winner - 2005 USA Song Writing Competition - in the World music category.

       "Trio Balkan Strings dedication to the music of the Balkans and central Europe is inspiring. The guitar interpretations of this music are wonderful. Really good !!!"

John McLaughlin

     Their music is like a handmade carpet, colorful and full of beautiful ornaments, but when you look more carefully and closely, you will see all the beauty of colors and art of every single pattern, thread and string woven in. Trio Balkan Strings is that kind of a carpet which one of the best Balkan guitar players, Zoran Starcevic, has been weaving on guitar strings all his life. It demands a lot of experience and technique, as well as the sophisticated feeling.  Nikola’s and Zeljko’s classical guitar education added some classical guitar techniques and elements and therefore was very useful in writing this music. There is also an influence of the West culture, because Zoran has started his career as a rock musician. He sold a million records in various different musical styles, but his first, final and greatest love is instrumental guitar music. You cannot find anything similar to this interpretation in all the discography, because some ornaments and techniques distinctive for other instruments such as sax and violin found place here. Many of the trills, mordents and the legato technique have never been played on guitar strings before. Authentic, attractive music with the finest taste, real presentation of guitar music in Balkan style and arrangement. You will hear the perfect interpretation from three of them and the universal music language, without frontiers, that fills everyone who listens to the Trio Balkan Strings . It is a music trip to that part of Europe, so if you like any of these elements, or you simply like instrumental guitar music, Trio Balkan Strings  is your perfect choice.

     The Trio has signed a contract for CD Balkan Guitars-Guitares des Balkans with Sunset-France-PlayaSound, a French music world records company specialized in World music for thirty years. The publisher in Serbia is PGP RTS and Starcevic Production. The new CD, Water-mill, is released in March 2007.

"A Legal Geography of Yugoslavia's Disintegration"
 
(Oxford University Press, 2007)
 http://www.amazon.com/Legal-Geography-Yugoslavias-Disintegration/dp/0195333438/ref=sr_1_1/002-3838085-8484816?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1189975730&sr=8-1

 
Sunday, October 28, 2007
 
12 noon to 1:00 p.m.
 
 
Where: St. Sava Church Hall
41 Alewife Brook Parkway,

Dr Ana S. Trbovich teaches European Integration and Public Administration at the Faculty of Economics, Finance and Administration (FEFA), University of Singidunum, Belgrade, Serbia, and is a consultant for various international organizations. From 2002 to 2006, Dr. Trbovich served as Assistant Minister of International Economic Relations in the Government of Serbia, charged 
with coordinating Serbia's EU accession process and foreign investment policies. She worked on implementation of the Dayton Peace Accords in Bosnia in 1997 and actively supported democratization efforts in Serbia during the 1990s.She holds a PhD from the Fletcher School
of Law and Diplomacy, MALD, Fletcher School; MPA, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard; and BA from Tufts University as a triple-major in Economics, International Relations and French Literature. Dr Trbovich further specialized in European Union policies at the Institut
d'Etudes Politiques in France. She is the author of A Legal Geography of
Yugoslavia's Disintegration (Oxford University Press, 2007).


Brief description of the book:
A Legal Geography of Yugoslavia's Disintegration by Dr Ana S. Trbovich (Oxford University Press, Nov 2007) explains the violent break-up of the former Yugoslavia in early 1990s in the context of two legal principles: sovereignty and self-determination of peoples. Recognizing the right to independence of the former Yugoslav republics, the international community effectively recognized the right to secession, departing from the post-WWII practice that generally emphasized territorial integrity and encouraged settlement of ethnic conflicts within the borders of an existing state. The genesis behind this policy decision, which arbitrarily allocated the right to secession to the largest federal units in a state, lay in the history of Yugoslavia's disintegration, occurring in conjunction with larger global developments, such as the end of the Cold War and the reunification of Germany. The right of a territory to secede could have been firmly established by the 1991 recognition policy were it not later reversed by the staunch political refusal to call the international recognition of former Yugoslav republics a
precedent, claiming that this was not the case of secession but "dissolution." The international intervention in the former Yugoslavia thus rendered human and minority rights the only legitimate form of self-determination, specifically focusing on European integration since 1999 as a framework for peaceful conflict resolution that would stem further secessions. Only Kosovo's international recognition now, as a clear case of endorsed secession, would imply that the exclusive international focus on the internal aspects of self-determination following the recognition of former Yugoslav republics was but a temporary aberration based on geopolitical concerns and that secession remained a viable option for dissatisfied peoples in the twenty first century.

Донаторско вече 2. мај 2009.

Крајем маја прошле године, приредили смо прво пролећно донаторско вече у жељи да прикупимо новац за поправке црквеног имања. Том приликом смо уживали у песмама које је изводила наша позната певачица Снежана Ђуришић. Током вечери смо успели да остваримо приход од око $14000 што је било довољно да фанансирамо неке од најбитнијих поправки. Поправили смо котао за грејање (мада нисмо могли да га заменимо што би решило овај проблем за дужи период). Такође, замењене су неке одводне цеви на звонику због којих је вода цурила у цркву. Почетком 2009. замењени су покидани олуци на цркви и пумпа за избацивање воде. И након ових поправки остаје нам још пуно ствари које треба урадити на уређењу/поправкама црквеног имања те се у наредним годинама томе морамо посветити многовише но до сада. Морамо што хитније да комплетно заменимо раван кров изнад црквене канцеларије и поправимо саставе на косим деловима крова јер смо приметили да вода цури на неколико места. Уколико сте обилазили око цркве сигурно сте приметили да је тротоар иза цркве у веома лошем стању и већи део би требао да буде замењен. Поред замене тротара морамо се позабавити и одводом кишнице јер смо до сада два пута имали поплаву у сали након обилних киша (вода би се са улице слила у један од улаза и након тога ушла у салу). У оквиру припрема за освећење желели би смо и да заменимо осветљење испред цркве јер су веома старо и неколико светиљки је већ одломљено или оштећено. Један озбиљан пројекат који би нашем Колу Српских Сестара значајно олакшао рад, а омогућио да се њихове активности прошире, је уградња комерцијалног шпорета у црквеној кухињи.

Као што видите списак ствари које треба урадити је веома дугачак и надамо се да ћете бити у могућности да нам помогнете јер без Ваше помоћи ништа од овога не можемо остварити. До сада смо сви били усресређени на отплату дуга за куповину цркве и успевали смо да годишње сакупимо преко $100,000 за отплату главнице. Надамо се да ћете увидети да сада имамо неке прече трошкове и да ћете преусмерити значајан део својих донација у ту сврху. Помозите да одржимо црквено имање у добром стању и да се за освећење представимо остатку Америке у најбољем светлу.

Видимо се 2. маја !!

May 2 fundraising dinner and dance

Last year we made a great effort to raise necessary funds in order to replace the heating boiler. We raised only about $14,000, which was enough to repair it but not to replace it. This year we continue investing in our heating system among other things. Recently we replaced stolen copper downspouts with aluminum ones.


There are several major repairs that are necessary: replacing the broken sidewalk on the north side of the church, repointing of the masonry walls, and repairing the roof in several areas. Also, we will need some electrical work done in our building.


The roof is already leaking in several areas, but the worst section is above church office. Water has already done some damage to the ceiling and walls. We have to start these repairs as soon as possible. Besides these mandatory repairs, we would also like to install a commercial stove in our kitchen. For all these things we need additional funds.


Therefore, we are planning a major fundraising event to be held on May 2, 2009. We have a beautiful church, but we have to take care of it. We especially have to work hard to prepare for the church consecration, which will take place in October. We count on you and hope that you will join us on the May 2 fundraising dinner and dance.

Fr. Dragoslav Kosic

Dear Parishioners,

As you probably know, Fr. Aleksandar has started his leave of absence on September 1. During his absence he and his family will spend one year in Serbia. He will be replaced by Fr. Dragoslav Kosic, who will spend one year in our parish with his wife Rosanda, and his daughters Anastasia, Theodora and Angelina.

Father Dragoslav and his family come to us from Mars, PA where he has faithfully served as Deacon and Secretary to His Grace Bishop of Mitrophan for the past 7 years and has visited our Boston parish many times over the years.

We encourage you to come to church and personally help us welcome Father Dragoslav, Popadija Rosanda and their beautiful, young family to Boston.

Отац Драгослав Косић

Драги парохијани,

Као што вероватно знате, Отац Александар је 1. септембра започео своје одсуство у оквиру којег ће са породицом провести годину дана у Србији. Замењиваће га Отац Драгослав Косић који ће са супругом Росандом и ћеркама Анастасијом, Теодором и Анђелином провести годину дана у нашој парохији.

Отац Драгослав је са породицом дошао из градића Марс у Пенсилванији, где је седам година верно служио као ђакон и секретар Владике Митрофана. У овом период је много пута био у посети нашој парохији.

Овом приликом желимo да вас замолимo да дођете у цркву да се упознате са Оцем Драгославом и његовом породицом, и пожелите им добродошлицу у нашу парохију.

Шта: Представа ГУСАРИЈАДА

Текст: Бранко Милићевић
Редитељ: 
Слободанка Цаца Алексић 

Глуме:
Бранко Милићевић
Ненад Ћирић
Јанош Тот 

Музички контакт шоу са живом рок свирком. Деца из публике "глуме" хор и Бранкове помагаче. Друга Пужева представа. Премијера је изведена на мору 1978. године са правим једрењаком, на пловећој турнеји "Од Улциња до Котора". Одиграна је преко хиљаду пута. Гусари намеравају да закопају благо на пустом острву. Бранко игра гусара који неће да закопа благо него хоће да купи бицикл како би имао чиме да иде у школу. Његов капетан, барба Мића се жестоко противи, али попусти пошто гусари обећају да ће бити добри ђаци. 

За децу "од 7 и 77" година. Дођите и поведите и ви вашу децу на дружење са чувеним Бранком Коцкицом, у представи која развесељује и оплемењујује публику већ пуних 23. године. За више детаља о представи посетите http://www.pozoristancepuz.com/gusarijada.html 

Карате можете купити на улазу у салу.  


Улазнице:
$
15 по особи, $5 за децу млађу од 12 година, $30 породични пакет (цела породица)

За додатне информације се јавите Саши Лекићу на events@stsavaboston.org или 617-818-6804.

Спонзорство

Приказивање представе ,,Гусаријада'' је до сада највећи и најкомплекснији позоришни подухват у нашој малој заједници, и зато се овим путем обраћамо и апелујемо за вашу помоћ.

Наиме, треба угостити осам глумаца, креативног и техничког особља који долазе у Бостон од 30. априла до 3. маја ове године. Времена нема много, а посла око организације је пуно, па бих вас замолио да ми што пре јавите ако је могуће да примите једног или два глумца/члана екипе на преноћиште за наведени период. Ваше обавезе би биле само да их покупите са аеродрома, доведете ујутру у нашу цркву на дан представе, и на крају одвезете до аеродрома. За све друго, они би се сами снашли.

Друга, и једнако важна помоћ, је спонзорство ове представе. Циљ нам је да што већем броју наше деце (и свима онима који су одрасли уз “Коцка, коцка, коцкицу”) омогућимо једно лепо искуство и дружење са легендарним Бранком Коцкицом, зато су цене карата минималне, и успех ове организације зависи од ваших добровољних прилога. Укупни трошкови организације су преко $3,000.

До почетка представе, тражимо:

- два златна спонзора од по $500

- осам сребрних спонзора од по $250

Наравно, сваки добровољни прилог у било ком износу је више него добродошао. 

Наши спонзори ће бити унети у програм представе (ако то желе, или могу да остану анонимни), и уз своје прилоге, добијају комплет улазница за све чланове породице.
Своје добровољне прилоге, за назнаком ,,Гусаријада" можете донети на представу.

Прослава Шесте Годишњице

Драга браћо и сестре у Христу,
Помаже Бог!
Срдачно Вас позивамо на прославу шесте годишњице наше нове цркве у Кембриџу. Били смо благословени напредком нашe парохије, нарочито у броју деце која долазе у нашу цркву сваке недеље. Време је да се окупимо поводом прославе годишњице и Донаторске вечери, која ће се одржати у суботу 19. новембра и да заједно прославимо наше успехе.

Имајте на уму да је ово и време када се обраћамо нашим парохијанима за подршку у исплати главнице нашег кредита. Ово је вероватно последња година у којој ће све ваше донације за исплате главнице кредита бити дуплиране. Надам се да ћете искористити ову значајну повољност да удвостручимо сваки долар који дате за исплату хипотеке. Ако кроз ваше великодушне прилоге успемо да скупимо 100.000 долара, моћи ћемо да смањимо дуг скоро на пола. Помозите нам да испунимо овај циљ.

Надамо се да ћемо вас видети на овом, за нашу парохију, веома битном догађају. Уколико имате неких питања слободно се обратите било ком члану управног одбора. Управни Одбор цркве Св. Саве

Тренутни износ хипотеке
на дан 30. септембра 2011.
$ 411.500

Програм за увећање донација
$1 за $1
Сваки долар који приложите биће удвостручен од стране једне дарежљиве породице.

За резервације молимо вас попуните приложени формулар и пошаљите га на events@stsavaboston.org или црквену адресу.

Удвостручење ваших донација!
Имамо изузетну прилику да значајно смањимо кредит за отплату цркве! Породица Едгерли је понудила изазов целој заједници да до краја 2011.г. скупимо 250000 долара, при чему ће они ту суму да удвоструче! На протеклој Донаторској вечери скупили смо око 60000 долара, и та свота ће бити удвостручена. Смањењем главнице кредита знатно ће се смањити и финансијси притисак на цркву, што ће нам омогућити да много активније наставимо развијање разноврсних културних и религијских програма, а посебно оних намењених деци које, хвала Богу, има све више и више. Зато вас молимо да размотрите да приложите вашу донацију за кредит до 12. децембра, пошто смо обавезни да главницу уплатимо до 21. децембра. Уплате можете да извршите чеком написаним на "St. Sava Church" са напоменом "For Mortgage" и пошаљете га поштом на
 
St. Sava Church
41 Alewife Brook Parkway
Cambridge, MA 02140
 
НОВО! Почели смо да примамо донације преко Пеј Пала!
Dollar-for-dollar matching of your donations!
We have a unique opportunity to substantially lower our mortgage for the church building! The Edgerley Family offered a challenge to our entire community to raise $250,000 until the end of 2011, and promised to match that amount! At the past Fundraiser we raised around $60,000, and that amount will be doubled. By decreasing the loan principal, the financial pressure on the church will substantially decrease, which would enable us to even more actively continue the development of rich cultural and religious programs, particularly those for the children whose numbers are, thank God, ever increasing. For this reason, please consider donating for mortgage until December 12, since we need to make a major principal payment on December 21. Please make your check payable to "St. Sava Church", with “For Mortgage” in the memo, and mail it to:
St. Sava Church
41 Alewife Brook Parkway

Lecture

Parenting and the Lenten Journey
By Dr. Philip Mamalakis
Friday, March 23rd, 7 p.m.
St. Sava parish hall


Lent is a time the Church offers us to pay more attention to the spiritual life and our spiritual growth. Yet, in our homes, life goes on as normal. We need to get our kids up in the morning, get them fed, and off to school. After school, we have homework and lessons, dinner time and getting kids to bed. Join us on Friday evening, after service, to hear Dr. Mamalakis discuss how the Lenten Journey in of the Church relates to the parenting challenges we face in the home. Bringing Lent into our homes goes beyond fasting and going to Church more. Dr. Mamalakis will present real strategies for how we live out the spiritual life of the Church by the way we parent our children throughout the week. These strategies are for grandparents, uncles, aunts, teachers, priests, and all who work with children

НОВИ КОМАД МИРЈАНЕ БОБИЋ МОЈСИЛОВИЋ
Гоца Лукић , фризерка из околине Београда , типичан роб телевизије, после много покушаја, напокон успева да уђе у ријалити шоу програм „Тражим мужа“. Телевизија се испоставља као последња шанса за обичног, малог човека да промени сопствени живот, ПОСЛЕДЊА ШАНСА, драма са смејањем и певањем, јесте прича о малим људима, и малим шансама, али је заправо прича о Великом брату који управља нашим животима, То је прича о свету забаве данас, о рејтинзима као једином мерилу успеха, то је прича о нашим посрнућима и узлетима, и о лакоћи са којим смо спремни да прихватамо наредбе, како би смо остали у игри. ПОСЛЕДЊА ШАНСА је прича о савременим херојима и реалити телевизији, а у ствари је прича о реалити позоришту.

У главној улози: СУЗАНА ПЕТРИЧЕВИЋ

St. Sava Celebration January 27, 2013

St. Sava Celebration

The children of the Boston parish honored St. Sava by celebrating his day (Savindan) along with the church’s patron Saint’s day on Sunday, January 27th.  They delivered an inspirational and delightful program for the parish with His Grace Bishop Mitrophan in attendance.

His Grace led the congregation in prayer with responses beautifully sung by the church’s St. Sava Choir.  He was assisted by Fr.  Aleksandar Vlajkovic from the home parish, along with the Very Reverend Ivan Marjanovic of Biddeford, Maine, and Very Rev. Roman Pelovski of the St. Petka Bulgarian Orthodox Church.  Nearing the end of the Divine Liturgy, the children and Kumovi of the slava were invited to the front of the church for the blessing of the holy bread and wheat.  His Grace Bishop Mitrophan tied the Gospel reading of the rich man entering into the kingdom of heaven to the life choices that Rastko Nemanjic, later St. Sava, made. Around three hundred parishioners participated in the liturgy.  At the end of the Liturgy, His Grace Bishop Mitrophan promoted Fr. Aleksandar to the rank of Protopresbyter Stavrofor. Fr Aleksandar was awarded for his “zeal and love in his pastoral service, for his exemplary family life and his personal effort in spiritual and material advancement of the parish,” according to His Grace.

Following the liturgy, a lovely luncheon was prepared by this year’s kumovi: Nebojsa and Sanja Stojkovic and Dejan Mircevski. They gave a piece of Kolach to next year’s kumovi: sisters Trajanka Milojevic and Jelisaveta Nickovic. The children’s program completed the day’s events with a wonderful play “Rastko Becomes Sava” written by Jerodjakon Stevan which was arranged and directed by Ankica Koldzic.  Several children recited poems or sang songs accompanied by a pianist, all dedicated to St. Sava in both the Serbian and English languages.  Three choreographies were performed by the St. Sava Children’s Folklore Ensemble directed by Djordje Koldzic. More than seventy children participated in the program. The program came to a conclusion with all the children on stage singing the “Uskliknimo s ljubavlju Svetitelju Savi.”
