29/5/2012

In the monastery of Decani the feast of the Ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ was solemnly celebrated – the church slava of the monastery. The Holy Liturgy was served by His Grace Bishop Teodosije of Raska-Prizren with the concelebration of 10 priests and in the presence of two hundred believers from Kosovo and Metohija and other parts of Serbia.

This year the feast of the Ascension is celebrated on the feast of Sts. Cyril and Methodius, the protectors of the newly restored Seminary of Prizren, so the joy of the liturgical gathering was even greater. Hence the pupils and teachers of the Seminary also participated in the Liturgy.

Following the feast day procession Bishop Teodosije blessed slava cakes which were prepared by the monks of the monastery and the pupils of the Seminary and wished happy holiday to all the present who came.

After the Holy Liturgy which was also attended by Commander of the Italian military contingent Colonel Sebastiano Longo, archimandrite Sava with the fraternity prepared the solemn table of love.
