hi,

I have a St Petka SOC in San Marcos, CA that is very close by. It's less than 15 miles.

What language do they use? I'm guessing Slavonic for music. How about the prayers and sermon?

I called a while back but the guy who answered the phone had a thick hard to understand English accent. I thought I would check with this board first and then call them up later if I can't get a response here.

Thanks.

Welcome to the Forum!!!

The Serbian churches I've visited did utilize Church Slavonic for the singing, and the sermon was in Serbian.

I got the Slavonic parts, but, the Serbian went well over my head.  Smiley

A: left coast Orthodoxy is a lot different than east coast

That said, my two parishes (buffalo and pittsburgh ) have about 50% or so, possibly leaning To more english with the rest in OCS(mostly like godsposi polimu and the like). The sermon is in english and serbian, and the readings are done the same, or just in english.

I am only repeating what I read here, because i admit to having no personal experience. that said, I know that Fr. Nebo said something(serb1389), but I cant remember exactly what. It's somewhere in his posts

Heck, I had a bit of an affinity for St. Pope John Paul because when he spoke in English, he had the same pitch and cadence as my mother's dad.

There is an OCA church nearby in Encinitas: Saint Katherine of Alexandria Orthodox Mission where the services should be all in English.

I'm now attending a Serbian church, and although the priest has an accent,  there is a decent amount of English in the Liturgy.  They switch off between English and Serbian for the Litanies and some songs, but the readings are in both Serbian and English and the sermon is in English.   I would just go and see if you like it.

Okay, I cant find it so i must be mistaken about him saying it. while I cant retract what I said, because I know it was said somewhere, I cant find any posts to prove it.

Nothing wrong with having to learn a little CS or Serbian. Helps sharpen the mind to learn.
