St Archangel Michael, Church Slava, Nov 19th/21st


Bishop Maxim at Tesla Club Event

 TESLA Club, Fri, Sep 17th, 7pm : Book presentation by Bishop Maxim: Krinka Vidaković-Petrov, SERBIAN AMERICANS: History—Culture—Press

Serbian Americans. History. Culture. Press is a comprehensive study on the Serbian American community in the U.S.A. It offers a wealth of information gathered from various sources – memoirs, documents, church archives, letters, articles, stories, and newspapers published since the establishment of the earliest Serbian fraternal organization in San Francisco and the consecration of the first Serbian Orthodox church in Jackson in the 19th c. See how the immigrants organized, what their life was like in Chicago, Pittsburgh, New York, Detroit, Douglas, and so many other places across America, how they adapted to the American way of life, how they preserved their Serbian identity and values; what were the hardships they faced and the dreams they followed; how so many returned to participate in "the final liberation of Serbs from the Turks" in the First Balkan War and defend Serbdom in World War One. It is a book dedicated to Serbian Americans proud of their roots and their ancestors.

ST SAVA CAMP - 2016

Bright Monday, May 2, 2016

Christ is Risen! Hristos Voskrese!

We trust that you all had a blessed Holy Week and Pascha.Camp registration is progressing at a very fast pace. Last year, we reached full capacity by the end of May.

Interest this year is even stronger. Most likely, we will begin the wait-list before the end of this month! As of this evening, we have fewer than 100 places still available for the 2016 season.

Please inform your camper families to register without delay.

REMEMBER: All clergy children are offered full scholarships to attend Camp St. Sava in Jackson, however, THEY MUST BE REGISTERED like every other camper.

Visit our website: campstsava.org, just as soon as you can.

Yours in the Risen Lord,

Fr. Steve, Camp Director


​Greetings Camp St. Sava Families:

The 2016 camp application forms have just been uploaded to our website: www.campstsava.org.

Please register your campers as soon as you can and download the new forms which need to be filled out and mailed with full payment by June 1, 2016 in order to qualify for the lower fee. Again this year, we have not raised our rates.

We are anticipating another great year with full attendance. Don't be disappointed by delaying your application. There are only 90 places for campers each week. We fill up very fast. Act today!

This week I have received calls from two of our clergy, from parishes which historically have not sent any children to our camp. Both priests told me that they have potentially 15 children interested in coming to camp this year. If the children in their parishes register, we will have an increase of over ten percent from last year.

Again, don't delay! Enroll your children online and send in your forms and full payment by June 1, 2016.

We all look forward to seeing your children and the parent volunteers this summer.

Fr. Steve Tumbas, Camp Director

Team Sarma Fest 2016!

Congratulations! The Eighth Annual Sarma Fest 2016 was another success! 

Thank you to Alicia Davidovich, Liljana Davidovich, Alexandra Davidovich, Marlene Swanson, Zora Kabich, Rada Molnar, Mary Bogdanovich, Peggy Milosevic who set the tables, which could not have happened without "A Few Good Men" who quickly in record time set the hall! They included Mark Hill, Chris Milosevic, John Radanovich, Bill Davidovich, Ted Miljevich and Mike Vrcelj! 

I would like to thank Dragana Rajkovic, Tanja Vrcelj, Popadija Jovic, Milena Bukarica ,Nenad and Stana Nikolic, for their professional kitchen operations. Nenad and Stanica Nikolic continue to make world-class Sarmas! They selected quality meats that Nenad personally ground twice in our church kitchen meat grinder. They worked tirelessly for many hours so that we can enjoy the wonderful dinner. Also, a "shout-out" to Rada Krtolica and her sister Beba, who came out Friday to help make the sarma! Without this team's dedication, we would not have been able to serve the quantity of Sarma's needed to feed our large, record-setting crowd! 

Tanja Vrcelj, Milena Bukarica, Marlene Swanson, Protinica Jovic, stepped in to help the kitchen crew serve the double line buffet. Mary Bogdanovich and Zora Kabich made sure you all had your tickets before we served you. We did not have to wait very long to get our delicious sarma dinner. Well done team! 

Mark Hill ran the ticket sales and reservations this year. Gabby Hill stepped in to help dad Mark sell tickets at the door. Natasha Hill sold Austrian Crystal "Got Sarma?" Hats. 

Also, thank you to Natasha Hill, Alexandra Davidovich, Jasmina Fisher who sold *raffle tickets for the Nordstrom $100 Gift Certificate (Donated by Bill Davidovich Family), $100 Macy's Gift Certificate (donated by Mike Vrcelj), three bottles of Dante Robere Estate Wine, (donated by Vera and Mark Hill!) As our tradition, Protinica Bunjevic auctioned off her famous Dobos Torta. It cost Bill Davidovich $300! * By the way, we heard your comment that we may have missed some folks who wanted to buy raffle tickets and should have asked "one-final round". Duly noted, thanks for the feedback. 

Our beloved band SRMA was back to perform! They did not name their band after "Sarma Fest". "SRMA" means the silver embellishments inside the traditional Serbian costume. It's an old word, adapted to a new band, SRMA! 

I also want to thank Micha and Mirko, our favorite bartenders for helping us sell drinks that evening! 

Bill Davidovich, I enjoyed reading "You know You are Serbian" with you this year! As you said, "Rakija cures all illness, celebrates all occasions and is most likely a great massage lotion". 

While proceeds from donations are still being collected, we can announce that gross proceeds will exceed $11,000, which is a RECORD. Thank you for your generous donations and for coming to this event! 

If I have forgotten anyone, I sincerely apologize. As you can see, it takes a village to run Sarma Fest! See you at Sarma Fest 2017! 

Ziveli! Vera Djordjevic-Hill & Mark Hill
