The Clergy, Executive Board, and Members of the St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church-School Congregation of Merrillville, Indiana send prayers and extend sympathies to the congregation of the Cathedral of St. Sava in New York as they have suffered a great loss today with a fire that has consumed their historic Church.

Our congregations share the name of our patron saint and now the experience of losing a place of worship, as we lost our church to an all-consuming fire in 1978. We offer our prayers during this difficult time and in the future as you organize to rebuild.
