For the individuals who have been contacted by the Church Health Team (CHT) to participate in the ONCD survey, please be sure to contact Fr. Stevo and/or Mike Vranesevic by August 30th regarding you availability to participate in the Sept. 16th survey (following the Divine Liturgy). The survey is the initial step and one of the most important parts of the ONCD program as it will represent a cross-section of our parish nucleus.  The CHT needs to have 30 people present during the day of the survey.  The survey will consist of 90 items and is estimated to take 25-30 minutes to complete.  We thank you in advance for your dedication and commitment to our St. Sava Parish! 


International Village - 2018

McKeesport’s International Village took place August 14-15-16, 2018. St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church participated by operating the Serbian Food Booth. We had a great time and enjoyed the fellowship this event brings to our community. We want to thank everyone who purchased food from our booth and we want to thank all who volunteered many hours of their time (organizing the event, booth set up, cooking, operating the booth, cleaning, and booth take down). Most importantly, we thank God for giving us all the strength and energy to run such a great operation. Hvala!

Prayer for Communities Suffering In Violence
A Prayer For God's Help!

"O Lord God of Hosts, God of our salvation, Who alone does wonders:  in mercy and goodness, look upon Your humble servants, and as the Lover of Mankind, hear us and have mercy on us! For behold, enemies of our communities have gathered together to destroy us and to bring ruin and destruction in our families.  Hear us, O God our Savior, and deliver us, for the Glory of Your Name, and grant that we may say with truth, as did Moses when he spoke to the Israelites and said:  'Be bold, and stand fast; and you shall see the salvation that comes from the Lord, for the Lord shall fight for you!'  Yea, O God, our Savior, our Strength, our Hope, and our Protection:  remember not the sins and the unrighteousness of Your people, and do not turn away from us because of Your anger; but in mercy and goodness look upon Your humble servants who bow down before Your loving-kindness.  Rise up to help us, and grant that we may be victorious in this conflict.  Grant forgiveness of sins to those, who in the mystery of Your Dispensation, may lose their lives in this cndeavor, and in the day of Your just retribution, bestow upon them crowns of incorruption.  For You are the Protection, the Victory, and the Salvation of those who hope on You, and to You we ascribe glory:  to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages, Amen!"

Offered on behalf of ALL the local communities in the Mon-Valley that are struggling to overcome the mindless violence that is permeating our neighborhoods this Summer.....Eve of Vidovdan, 2018
