Father Bogdan Zjalic and Father Marko Matic will lead a series of discussions relating to the Orthodox Faith Wednesday, Mar. 8 at 6:30 p.m. at St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church, 9191 Mississippi Street, Merrillville, Indiana.

The discussion series session provides an opportunity for everyone to gain new perspectives in the Orthodox Faith, including people currently participating in the Orthodox Faith and people from the community who are curious to learn more about the Orthodox Faith.

The sessions are free and open to everyone. The sessions will take place in the South Wing Social Center at the south end of the main Church building near the parking lot entrance.

The first discussion series session took place in February and will continue to take place monthly with three more sessions currently on the calendar.

This special discussion series is being launched as result of a successful event earlier in January 2017 where Father Bogdan Zjalic presented the topic, “Human Relationship with Jesus Christ” with more than a dozen people attending to listen to the presentation and ask questions.

This special discussion series is also one of several new initiatives that have taken place in recent months at St Sava Church in Merrillville that provide opportunities for members of St. Sava, members of other Orthodox Churches, and community members to engage in unique spiritual and cultural learning opportunities.

Such opportunities have included learning about the history of the Cyrillic Alphabet, participating in a class to learn how to read and write the Cyrillic alphabet, and a Serbian Language class currently in session that is teaching participants the basics of conversational Serbian Language.
