St. Sava Camp at Shadeland

Once again, on August 7, 2016, with the blessing of His Grace Bishop Dr. Mitrophan, the Shadeland Camp finished the summer program with the Divine Liturgy followed by a picnic. Parishioners from the Eastern Diocese of the Serbian Orthodox Church gathered together and enjoyed the program prepared by the youth of our Church attending the Shadeland Camp. This year some of our young parishioners were also part of the event. May God bless that this beautiful preserving of our cultural tradition will continue for many years to come.
