Also, the President of Republika Srpska Milorad Dodik has been invited and will be in attendance on this historic occasion.

Many of our Bishops from Serbia and North America also will be in attendance.

As you might be aware, an event of such magnitude as this one will require logistics of many different sorts as well as the financial support and generous sponsors from the entire Western American Diocese including our own parish!

May the Lord through the prayers of the newly canonized saints Mardarije and Sebastian bless and reward you and your families!
