Dear Parents,

Sretna Slava to those who celebrate Sveti Dimitrije today. Two months of Cultural and Church School have passed and we are pleased to say we have been making great accomplishments. We have 133 children registered in our Church School & Cultural Program. Lets make our children’s spiritual and cultural education a priority! The teachers of both programs will be meeting this upcoming week to plan the Sveti Nikola Program & Sveti Sava program. Therefore it is crucial to bring your child to Church School in order for them to perform in these activities. We have a whole new program planned for both holidays which is very exciting!

Please remember to bring your canned foods to support our high school students Food Drive. It is necessary for them to fulfill their community volunteer hours.

Please remember that Friday Nov 16 is our Thanksgiving Celebration Dance! Our Ravanica Choir is supporting us and sponsoring Karaoke; DJ Alex will be playing Music; Food, Dessert and Drinks will be provided.

$10 for Adults at Door $5 for Children (children under 2 free).

We need parent volunteers for bartending, ticket sales and food prep/serving/cleanup. Please email Ruza at if you would like to voluneteer. We also need some mothers to bring sweets (cupcakes, cookies, etc.) Don’t miss this fun opportunity to have fun with your children and see what the have learned!

Our deepest condolences go out to Julie & Zoran Djurich and their four beautiful children. Julie’s deda passed away last Sunday. Funeral Arrangements are as follows for anyone interested.
