Gary Emerson High School Alumni Class of 1959 celebrated their 52nd Reunion in St. Sava's South Wing Social Center at the suggestion of classmate and church member Pete Skorich. They were extremely satisfied with the homemade meal prepared by Donna Pejnovic and Nada Konjevic. About 50 attended the casual Friday afternoon event, and we hope to see them again when they're ready to celebrate other happy occasions
Join Fr. Marko Thursday evenings from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm in the North Wing Class Room for adult Bible Study. Classes will cover Bible & Church History, Worship, Doctrine, and Spirituality.
St. Sava's new Learning Center is hosting an Enrichment Program for Pre-Schoolers, an extension of our Sunday School. The facility has bright new classrooms and a kitchenette, and is supervised by Lela Damnjanovich, experienced in early childhood education. Also volunteering their talents are Darlene Sever and Ljubica Popovich. Parents, grandparents, or caretakers are encouraged to participate in this classroom setting. Classes are well organized and include music, story time, arts & crafts, and indoor & outdoor activities. Children are encouraged to participate, share, and socialize, and they'll learn something too. It's never too late to join these 10 week sessions: Friday morning classes from 9:30 am to 11:30 am. More classes will be added in the future as the need grows. For additional information call (219) 736-9191 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. (Click photo to enlarge)
