His Grace Bishop Irinej of Eastern America expresses his gratitude to His Holiness Serbian Patriarch Porfirije, and also to the esteemed members of the Holy Synod of Bishops of the Serbian Orthodox Church for having expressed their paternal care for their spiritual children wherever they may be throughout our Diaspora, and especially in New York, so that we can all together establish peace, harmony and sincere fraternal love among its parishioners, and thus advance the reconstruction of the burnt church.
The work done so far on the church and its protection has been awarded prestigious recognition, The Lucy G. Moses Award, on May 6, 2021.
Let us all live in harmony, Saint Sava help us!
