Патријарх Иринеј у Западноамеричкој епархији

Од 4. до 9. септембра 2015. године Патријарх Иринеј је посетио Калифорнију и предвoдио прославу поводом канонизације Светог Севастијана Санфранциског и Џексонског у Катедрали Светог Стефана у Лос Анђелесу. Народ, свештеници и Владике, који су дошли из свих православних јурисдикција, нису могли сакрити велику радост поводом овог јединственог догађаја у њиховом животу. Патријарх је служио Литургију, причешћивао народ и беседио о чудесном животу новопросијавшег Светог Севастијана и рекао ”ходио је стопама Светога Саве”. После Лос Анђелеса, Патријарх је са својом великом пратњом посетио винарију ”Ополо”, као и залив Сан Франциска. На крају пута, у Њујорку, Патријарх је примио почасни докторат на Академији Св. Владимира.

Milina Jovanović offers a unique compilation of individual and family immigration stories that include enormous contributions to the development of California and significant community involvement.

This book also focuses on women’s contributions that are too often overlooked. Ms. Jovanović’s study reveals that Jackson not only remains an original and symbolic home to Serbian Americans and Serbian Orthodox religion, but also an oasis where the Serbian community has preserved its positive reputation and social influence.
