Welcome to Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Serbian Orthodox Church. We are glad to have you as part of the congregation and look forward to getting to know you better. This page is to help you become better acquainted with us.
Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Blessed is a congregation of Western American Diocese of Serbian church in USA , under the spiritual guidance of His Grace Bishop Maxim.
Today the congregation is composed of descendants of the original Serbian settlers in Sacramento, together with Orthodox Christians from many different backgrounds including Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Bulgaria, Romania, India, Ethiopia, and Palestine (Israel). In addition, a large and growing percentage of our members are Americans of various religious backgrounds who have come to the Orthodox faith as adults.
Today the primary language of worship at our church is English and Serbian with some of the hymns sung in their original Church Slovanik. Sunday School classes for children of all ages meet following the Divine Liturgy, with youth activities and adult Bible-study on Wednesdays and/or other nights. A coffee hour follows the Divine Liturgy, and is a time to get acquainted with the members of the parish. A bookstore is also available, for books, gifts and Orthodox literature.
We value your presence and invite you to take part in the activities of our parish. Ask us about youth activities; KSS circle of Serbian Sisters; the choir; pledging for the financial support of the church.
As your priest I look forward to visiting with you in your home or in my office. Please feel free to call upon me anytime if I can be of help to you.
Yours in Christ,
+Fr. Dane Popovic & Fr. Bill Weir
