Icon-Bearing Relic of St. Mardarije of Libertyville

Our St. Sava Parish was blessed beyond measure on March 4, 2018 (the 2nd Sunday of Great Lent) with the welcoming of the Icon-Bearing Relic of St. Mardarije of Libertyville, donated by the Cannon Family, in honor of their mother, Betsy’s 90th Birthday! 

Fr. Marc Vranes, nephew of Betsy Cannon, was able to join Fr. Stevo Rocknage in presenting the Holy Icon to the faithful for the first time, at the Great Doxology of Matins before the Holy Liturgy. 

The relic was given to the parish by His Grace, Bishop IRINEJ in a gesture of Arch-Pastoral Love, and the reliquary was donated for the relic by Fr. Marc….the beautiful Icon was written by the Deacon Matthew Garret, and reflects the wonder and the glory of one of God’s beloved Saints!

“Glory to God for all things!”

Stewardship Work Party

We had an excellent showing of support on Saturday, May 26, 2018 during our "Stewardship Work Party."  Volunteers helped out for a few hours to weed the parking lot hillside and perform general yard maintenance around the Church property.   The entire Parish is grateful to have such wonderful Stewards serving Christ.  Thank You!
