An agape feast was prepared for all participants in the seminar in the seminary hall. The rector presented the participants with appropriate gifts, a monograph of the Cathedral Church of Sremski Karlovci and the school magazine Karlovacki bogoslov.
Thanks to the project “Come to me, all of you, I will give you rest” (Mt 11:28), for which the seminary “St. Arsenije” in Sremski Karlovci received financial support from the Ministry of Culture and Information, technical means were procured, which enabled work on the signature and digitalization.
While arranging the books, some books dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries were found, as well as many manuscript textbooks. Some of them are: Introduction to the Holy Scriptures of the New Testament by nona Zremski, Phonetics of the Russian language by Djordje Jazic, Liturgics of Jovan Zivkovic, History of the Christian Church, Part I, by Professor M. Jaksic. A special fund is the Library of Duke Momcilo Djujic, which he handed over as a gift to the library of the Karlovci seminary. The current number of books in the library’s holdings is approximately between 25,000 and 35,000 books.
