VELIKO HVALA BOGU!!!!
There is no doubt that we owe our Lord and God Jesus Christ a big thank you for a wonderful weekend for our festival!!!
Also a great thank you to our festival committee...we know who they are and the many others who gave their time, donations
and hard work so that our 3rd Annual Festival such a great success!!!Veliko Hvala!
Bog te blagoslovio!!!
We thank the people from our Church...the surrounding communities, and members of other churches who came and supported us!
I heard many people who were working thanking God for the good weather....and I thank God for our Church and the people who are working hard to promote the Holy Gospel, to Give Glory to God and work for their parish of St Simeon...without any expectation of thanks, or a pat on the back or financial re-numeration....that is what true belief is....that is putting faith into action!!It is wonderful to see how this festival did so many good things:
A. It brought many people together to volunteer their time at the festival...without stress....but not only did they work they stayed,
bought tickets and supported the festival financially. ( > 300+ Photos )
B. 6 new families, with children are joining the church...because they heard the radio announcements about the Serbian festival
...and didn't even know that was a Serbian Orthodox Church here.
C. By holding tours and answering question about the new church, we received donations, offers to help with certain specialized
building talents...and the offer of so many to pray for us as we build.
D. It brought wonderful dancers from St George Serbian Orthodox Church in Schererville, Indiana and St Sava Serbian Orthodox
Church from St Petersburg, Florida to perform with our own MAGNIFICENT dance group BALKAN. Soon our dance group will be
holding a fundraiser...please support them...they do so much to enhance our church community.
E. This FESTIVAL showcased the cooperation and cohesiveness of our people and their willingness to sacrifice their sweat,
time, talents and monies for OUR CHURCH and SERBIAN CULTURE!!!
So, if you missed it, we have already started planning for the 4th Annual Serbfest. Now is the time to become part of the best
Serbian Community...ST SIMEON SERBIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH!!!
