Orthodox Pentacost Celebrated in Graçanica

While on our way to Church in Prishtina Sunday we passed throught the Serbian town of Graçanica.  As we drove through we were stopped by large procession bearing banners, icons, flowers and happy looking people.  We didn’t know what it was at the time.OrthoPentacost_0601  Unforunately, unlike our colleagues in the Slavic countries, we have little interaction with the Serbian Orthodox minority in Kosovo.

It turned out last Sunday was Orthodox Pentacost and these happy worshippers where on their way to the 14th Century church and monestary that is the focal point of the city.

Congratulations and God bless!
