Two hundred pupils of the Religious Education attended the Eucharistic gathering.
His Grace Vicar Bishop Arsenije of Toplice, with the blessing of the Serbian Patriarch Irinej, celebrated Hierarchal Liturgy in the church of St. Nicholas of Zicha at Resnik, Belgrade on the Sunday of 18th of September 2016. Next to the pious parishioners of this Belgrade suburb town, the Divine Liturgy was attended by more than 200 pupils who attend Religious Education classes (Catechism) in public schools located in the neighboring area. The mayor of the Rakovica Community, Mr. Vladan Kocic, with his colleagues was in the congregation.
His Grace delivered a sermon and conveyed best wishes and blessings of His Holiness the Patriarch Irinej – who has been on a archpastoral visitation to Canada – and opened the colony of painters under the auspices of the Centre for Culture and Education Rakovica, that has organized a special Week (17th to 23rd September 2016) dedicated to spirituality under the general title The Way of Spirituality.
