As part of the preparations of the Diocese of New Gracanica and Midwestern America for the upcoming celebration of Saint Mardarije of Libertyville this July 14 – 16, 2017, the Diocese is pleased to announce that a new, official website (www.stsavamonastery.org) for Saint Sava Monastery in Libertyville has been launched today. The monastery which was founded and built by Saint Mardarije and houses his holy relics will be the main venue of the upcoming celebration.
“We are very pleased that Saint Sava Monastery, as an endowment of Saint Mardarije to our faithful on this continent, as a place where Saint Nikolai of Zhica prayed and celebrated the Divine services, as a place of pilgrimage and prayer for many Orthodox Christians, and as a place which is in the hearts of many of our parishioners and youth, now has a permanent presence on the Internet where more people will be able to learn about its history, our rich Orthodox Tradition, and the upcoming celebration of Saint Mardarije,” said His Grace Bishop Longin.
Information about the upcoming celebration will be posted to the monastery website in the coming weeks as plans are finalized.
