Dear Brothers and Sisters,
To all faithful Parishioners of our St. Archangel Michael Serbian Orthodox Church, we greet you on this most joyful Christian feast of the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ with faith and anticipation for the resurrection of the whole world from these days of temptation. May the Paschal holidays be to everyone for their salvation and spiritual growth, so that we may in Christian love, witness the Risen Lord Jesus Christ. We greet you with our traditional Easter greeting:
Christ is Risen – Indeed He is Risen!
Hristos Voskrese – Vaistinu Voskrese!
In Risen Lord yours,
To-Go Easter lunch is available for pre-order now! Please order no later than Thursday, April 29th. Lunch will be available for pickup on Easter Sunday (May 2nd) from 12:00 - 1:00 pm. Click below to order.
We will have a limited number of outdoor seatings available for lunch.
As we approach Holy Week, it might be especially hard for us Orthodox Christians to accept some of these restrictions suddenly placed on our rich, inherently communal activities of joint prayer and solemn observation, leading into the resurrectional joyous celebration. However, mankind has rebounded from much greater trials and tribulations, and there should be no doubt that - with God's help and with our fervent prayers and good works - this shall happen again. In this spirit, you are invited to make an Easter donation in support of the Church by clicking below.
Peace from God - Christ is Born!...Today a Savior has been born to you, He is Christ the Lord (Luke 2:11).
Fr. Slobodan Jovic

Bishop Maxim sends special coronavirus message April 8, 2020
A person can never stand still at any point. Every spiritual attainment is the beginning of a new journey. Life is one continuous progress. And when you attain to knowledge and virtue, you have to leave, to go beyond these attainments. You cannot get drunk if you do not drink wine. You cannot catch fire if you do not approach the fire and become wholly incandescent. The presence of the Spirit, "who neither begins nor ceases," is evident in the expression of the face. It is the whole psychosomatic substance of man, full of an awe born of gratitude and timidity before the inexplicable condescension of God who becomes man. It suffers. "And through suffering, what is mortal puts on the majesty of incorruption." (Elder Vasileios of Iveron)by Elder Vasileios of Iveron
