IN MEMORIAM:
PROTOJEREJ-STAVROFOR STEVAN PETROVICH

On Sunday, January 23rd, our Lord called his servant Protojerej-Stavrofor Stevan Petrovich into eternal repose. He was 91 years old.

Fr. Stevan was the spiritual founder and long-time parish priest of the Serbian Orthodox Church of St. Petka - "Vratnica" in Detroit.

He was well-known among the clergy and the faithful for his fierce confession of Christ under Communist torture, his fiery sermons, and unwavering faith.

May our God, Who manifested Himself on the river Jordan, receive the soul of His faithful servant priest Stevan into His Kingdom and grant him Memory Eternal!

_________________________________________

I was honored to be at his funeral last night.  I've been to St. Petka's a number of times, but, last night there was not an empty parking spot to be found, and I arrived almost an hour before the services were to begin.

There were two bishops present, Bishop Longin and Bishop Georgije.  While I understand almost no Serbian, (although there was quite a bit of Church Slavonic used), it was one of the most beautiful services I have ever attended.

It was easy to spot "visitors" versus the regulars.  Two hours in to the service, the visitors couldn't stand anymore and were all quietly sinking down on the benches.  The Serbs on the other hand were standing tall and straight.

May Protojerej Stavrofor Stevan's Memory be Eternal!
