Ministry Groups

Organizations and Ministry Groups

Parishioners are encouraged to become active members of the following organizations and ministries that support and enhance the religious, cultural, and social activities of the Parish!

Altar Servers

Our Altar Servers are vital components of the Church. They assist the Priest during services.

St. Sava Church Choir

The church choir is doubtless the most essential and inspirational of all church organizations. The St. Sava mixed choir, organized in 1934, by Father Popovich, has faithfully served the church for over 90 years and continues to add a deep spiritual dimension to the beauty of the liturgical services. This group of dedicated singers has demonstrated a true sense of loyalty and dedication to this vital ministry of church singing.

Holy Trinity Kolo (Sveta Trojica Kolo Srpski Sestara)

The Holy Trinity Circle of Serbian Sisters ("Kolo") was organized in March of 1931. The purpose of the Kolo is to promote sisterly love, unity, church and social activities among the Kolo members and within the church-school community. An important element of their mission has been to provide furnishings for the parish house and the Church. Over the years the group has had many fundraising activities, making and selling delicious homemade noodles, strudels and palachinka.

This dedicated group of women can always be counted on to provide a delicious meal for banquets and are a vital part of our annual parish fundraisers.

St. Sava Men's Club

The St. Sava Men's Club is known for its generous support of parish projects. This hardworking group raises funds by hosting their semi-annual oldies dance and helping with many other parish fundraisers. They will never hesitate to donate their time, talents, and labor to get work done.

St. Sava Sisterhood

The St. Sava Sisterhood conducted its initial membership meeting on April 30, 1981. The Sisterhood, through its generous spirit, assumes all of the finances necessary for the education and recreation of our church-school students. Begun in the 1980's, the sisterhood continues to raise funds by baking and selling nutrolls at Christmas and Pascha.

St. Sava Youth Group

Our Youth Group is grades 7 through 12....we are meeting on a regular basis with Prota Stevo, with the goal being a strong commitment to fellowship and service in our ranks.
