Dear Parishioners,
In light of the severity of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, and the accompanying struggle which many individuals and families are going to face, the St. Sava Cathedral board on behalf of the entire parish will be offering limited aid to individuals and families in need.
If you are under significant financial stresses and need assistance purchasing food and other household essentials, there are many resources you can take advantage of to help ease the burden. While state and federal resources will be the most impactful, they aren't enough to cover everything for everyone. If you need additional aid, please reach out and we'll try to accommodate you. We understand that many individuals and families will be facing enormous difficulties in the coming weeks and months.

Below is a list of government resources.

While we are offering help to anyone who needs it, please keep in mind that our ability to provide aid is limited. We ask that you use your judgment to determine whether your need is immediate. If so, please reach out. If you need help, contact either of us.
Fr. Aleksandar Vlajkovic

We're all in this together, especially in times of exceptional crisis. We continue to rely on the support of those who are able, and appreciate the financial contributions which have continued electronically in lieu of weekly donations. Without these it would be far more difficult to provide assistance. Contributions can be made here:
When donating, please indicate that it's for 'Families in Need' or 'COVID Relief'.
Thank you.
Драги парохијани,
С обзиром на озбиљност пандемије корона вируса, и пратећих проблема с којима се суочавају појединци и породице, Одбор Храма Свети Сава ће, у име читаве парохије, нудити ограничену помоћ свима којима је помоћ потребна.
Ако сте финансијски угрожени и треба вам помоћ при куповини намирница и основних потрепштина за домаћинство, постоји низ ресурса које можете искористити као олакшицу.
Али ако федерални и државни ресурси нису довољни, ту смо да прискочимо ако је потребно. Разумемо да ће се многи суочити са недаћама у наредних пар недеља или месеци.
Погледајте листу владиних ресурса испод.

Иако смо вољни помоћи свим угроженима, имајте на уму да су наша средства ограничена. Ако су ваше потребе хитне, молимо вас да нам се обратите:

Боримо се заједно у овом периоду изузетне кризе. Ослањамо се на подршку оних који су и даље у могућности дати прилог цркви, у овом случају електронски уместо недељних донација. Без њих би било много теже изаћи у сусрет свима. Ваше донације можете послати овде :
Молимо вас да назначите да је ваш прилог за помоћ угроженим породицама или COVID-19 помоћ.
Хвала вам!

My fellow parishioners,
As has become abundantly obvious, our ability to come to church and participate together in Liturgies and Services has been severely restricted by the current state of affairs. As a result, weekly donations and collections have ceased - donations which we depend on to maintain our cathedral and grounds and pay our regular bills. I humbly ask you to go to and contribute a portion of what you'd regularly give each Sunday.
We are also aware of the current situation, that some will lose their jobs or that household income will be reduced. If you are in this situation, feel free to cut your contribution to the church you promised earlier through the Stewardship, or quit completely until your financial situation improves.
Thank you.
Petar Ojdrovic, St. Sava Cathedral Board President
Драги парохијани,
Свесни смо да је наша могућност похађања Литургија ограничена тренутним стањем. Самим тим је и износ донација, које примамо сваке недеље, знатно опао. Наш Храм се ослања на те донације, које помажу плаћању редовних рачуна. Стога вас молим, ако сте у могућности, да путем наше веб странице приложите онај износ који сте имали на уму донирати недељом након Литургије.
Свесни смо, такође, тренутне ситуације, где ће неки остати без посла или чија ће примања бити умањена. Уколико сте у таквој ситуацији, слободно умањите ваш допринос цркви који сте раније обећали кроз Старатељство, или престаните начисто док се ваша финансијска ситуација не побољша.
Унапред захвалан,
Петар Ојдровић, Председник Управног одбора Храма Свети Сава

Недеља Томина

А кад би увече, онај први дан недеље, и врата беху затворена где се беху ученици скупили од страха јеврејског, дође Исус и стаде на среду и рече им: Мир вам. И ово рекавши показа им руке и ребра своја. Онда се ученици обрадоваше видевши Господа. А Исус им рече опет: Мир вам; као што Отац посла мене, и ја шаљем вас. И ово рекавши дуну, и рече им: Примите Дух Свети. Којима опростите грехе, опростиће им се; и којима задржите, задржаће се. А Тома, који се зове Близанац, један од дванаесторице, не беше онде са њима кад дође Исус. А други му ученици говораху: Видесмо Господа. А он им рече: Док не видим на рукама Његовим рана од клина, и не метнем прста свог у ране од клина, и не метнем руке своје у ребра Његова, нећу веровати. И после осам дана опет беху ученици Његови унутра, и Тома с њима. Дође Исус кад беху врата затворена, и стаде међу њима и рече: Мир вам. Потом рече Томи: Пружи прст свој амо и види руке моје; и пружи руку своју и метни у ребра моја, и не буди неверан него веран. И одговори Тома и рече Му: Господ мој и Бог мој. Исус му рече: Пошто ме виде веровао си; благо онима који не видеше и вероваше. А и многа друга чудеса учини Исус пред ученицима својим која нису писана у књизи овој. А ова се написаше, да верујете да Исус јесте Христос, Син Божји, и да верујући имате живот у име Његово.
Sunday of St. Thomas

Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.” And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.” And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.
