800th Anniversary of the Serbian Orthodox Church

October 01, 2019

Join our Orthodox Christian brothers and sisters in Serbia as they celebrate the 800th anniversary of the holy Serbian Orthodox Church!

Thanks to the efforts of the Information Service of the Serbian Orthodox Church, a special webpage has been created where faithful from across the world can virtually join in the celebrations, via videos and text updates. You may access this page in its original Serbian, or in English via Google translate.

Below is a brief schedule of events, in local Serbian time (GMT +2):
    • October 6: Hierarchical Divine Liturgy at the historic Žiča Monastery (9:00 a.m.)
    • October 8: Ceremonial event at the Sava Center (8:00 p.m.) 
    • October 9: Opening of the special exhibition, Eight Centuries of Art Under the Auspices of the Serbian Orthodox Church, at the Museum of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Belgrade (6:00 p.m.)
 
Although these events are local to Serbia, your prayers are truly universal. Let us rejoice and thank God in prayer together, whether Serbian or American, for His great mercies over the last eight centuries!
