Maria Mirkovich was born, and then baptized and married at St Sava Serbian Orthodox Church in Cleveland, Ohio. As a first generation American, her Orthodox faith has always been important wherever she moved professionally. First to St Luke’s in the Washington, DC area and now St Sava’s in New York City. At each one of these locations, a Serbian church needed to be built! Maria is married to Feodor Byndas, who is of Russian Orthodox heritage and sings in our choir.
