The Feast of Saint Lazarus - 06/28/17
The feast day of St. Lazarus of Kosovo is recorded in the minds and hearts of believers of Saint Nicholas Church.
Beautiful sunny ‘Vidovdan’ day and even more beautiful due to liturgical hymns by the faithful. Choir director Danica Wess sang at Holy Liturgy with help of Dianne Tomah, Patricia Neil, Dorothy Podolak, Milan Gvozdich and popadija Izvorinka. Robert Stramanak, Gavrilo and Jovan Zaric helped in the Holy Altar. After reading of the Holy Gospel presbyter Dragan Zaric addressed the faithful: "The martyrs of Kosovo past and present chose the heavenly kingdom over the earthly benefits. They chose to be true to God, to the Church and to themselves. The martyrs of Kosovo are commemorated in the Holy Liturgy. Their witness and faith stand to teach and inspire each subsequent generation. At each stage in our life, we must make choices which define us as witnesses of our Lord Jesus Christ (St. John 15.27). Our life should be based on the teachings of Jesus Christ". When the Priest presents the Chalice saying: "With the fear of God, faith and love, draw near", all present partake of the Holy Communion.
