On Saturday, October 23rd 2010, His Grace Bishop Longin visited Saint Petka’s missionary parish in Nashville, Tennessee for the first time for the celebration of the parish’s Slava. Liturgy was served in the greek church of Saint John Chrysostom which is also a missionary parish, under direction of Fr Parthenios Turner. Serbian parish community of Saint Petka serves Liturgy at Saint John’s every third Sunday with their own priest Fr Dragan Micanovic.
After Divine Liturgy, memorial service was served for the departed members of the parish community. Later, a banquet was held. Kumovi of the Slava this year were Zarko and Anka Jokic with their family.
