Serbian Orthodox Church Consecrates Church in Cambridge

With the arrival of a new iconostasis, or icon screen, October 10 and 11, 2009, marked the Great Consecration of St. Sava’s Serbian Orthodox Church in Cambridge. At the sermon given at the consecration His Eminence Metropolitan Nikolaj of Dabrobosanska, Metropolitanate in Bosnia, exclaimed: “The Church invites us to grasp that it is not a closed community of the saved…but it is a holy liturgical community of the faithful, which acknowledges and glorifies the experience of Christ’s suffering, death and resurrection, the victory over death. And with this we enliven and transfigure all, the entire universe, in freedom and love. Therefore, our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ does not close us in ourselves, in our circles, in our country, in our local Church, but invites us to celebrate all and everything with hope and love.” The following slide show presents images from this event.
