After over twenty years as integral members of our St. Sava parish community, our dear parishioners Lana Balach and Luc Van Anderlecht will be moving to Reno, Nevada at the end of this month. We thank them for their service to our church and community, and are grateful for their friendship. From board membership to consulting and implementing technology, to cleaning, cooking, singing, teaching, organizing events, working long hours, and giving of their time, treasures, and talents, Luc and Lana have been (and will continue to be) cherished members who will be greatly missed. We hope they will visit Boston often!

Lana, thank you for taking thousands of photographs, which permanently recorded precious moments in our community. 
Luc, don't be surprised if we call you in Reno the next time we have an issue with the sound equipment. 

Please let’s all wish them the very best as they begin this next chapter. Cheers and may God grant you many years!
Sunday of Holy Fathers of 7th Council

So it was, as the multitude pressed about Him to hear the word of God, that He stood by the Lake of Gennesaret, and saw two boats standing by the lake; but the fishermen had gone from them and were washing their nets. Then He got into one of the boats, which was Simon’s, and asked him to put out a little from the land. And He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.” And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!” For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish which they had taken; and so also were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid. From now on you will catch men.” So when they had brought their boats to land, they forsook all and followed Him.
Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You, as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him. And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
Недеља Светих Отаца 7. вас. сабора

Једанпут пак, кад народ належе к Њему да слушају реч Божију Он стајаше код језера генисаретског, И виде две лађе где стоје у крају, а рибари беху изишли из њих и испираху мреже: И уђе у једну од лађа која беше Симонова, и замоли га да мало одмакне од краја; и седавши учаше народ из лађе. А кад преста говорити, рече Симону: Хајде на дубину, и баците мреже своје те ловите. И одговарајући Симон рече Му: Учитељу! Сву ноћ смо се трудили, и ништа не ухватисмо: али по Твојој речи бацићу мрежу. И учинивши то ухватише велико мноштво риба, и мреже им се продреше. И намагоше на друштво које беше на другој лађи да дођу да им помогну; и дођоше, и напунише обе лађе тако да се готово потопе. А кад виде Симон Петар, припаде ка коленима Исусовим говорећи: Изиђи од мене, Господе! Ја сам човек грешан. Јер беше ушао страх у њега и у све који беху с њим од мноштва риба које ухватише; А тако и у Јакова и Јована, синове Зеведејеве, који беху другови Симонови. И рече Исус Симону: Не бој се; одселе ћеш људе ловити.И извукавши обе лађе на земљу оставише све, и отидоше за Њим.
Ово говори Исус, па подиже очи своје на небо и рече: Оче! Дође час, прослави Сина свог, да и Син Твој прослави Тебе; Као што си Му дао власт над сваким телом да свему што си Му дао да живот вечни. А ово је живот вечни да познају Тебе јединог истинитог Бога, и кога си послао Исуса Христа.
