On Sunday, January 29th, the children of St George Serbian Orthodox Church hosted their annual St Sava Celebration. Under the leadership of church school teachers Svetlana McCully, Rajko Radonjich, and Kathy Tobias, the children prepared a show that not only entertained the audience, but also educated them!
Starting with our preschool class, our youngest students crossed themselves, said the Lord’s Prayer, and sang B-I-B-L-E. The primary grades followed up by going through lessons from Scripture, including the Beatitudes. The final performance was by the middle school students – a ‘reader’s play’ of the life of St Sava.
As is customary at our parish, the children then had an opportunity to share their unique talents and gifts with the audience. Featured performers were Lazar Pavichevich on violin, Sophia Pavichevich on harp, Addy Tompot performing an amazing dance routine, and Luka Kraguljac on electric guitar.
Thanks to Jasminka Kraguljac who led the kitchen crew for the event, and for all the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and community members that came out to support the hard work of our children and our teachers.
