It is our great pleasure to inform you of the selection of Mr Filip Jovanovic for the management position at the Serbian Community Club.
Born in 1987 in Smederevo and a teacher of English language, Filip graduated from Belgrade University with BA and masters degrees and a graduate qualification in "Hotel and Tourism". Having moved to London last year, Filip has been a Church-goer ever since. It is our belief that he will bring great enthusiasm to the running of the restaurant and the organizing of our cultural events. Going forward, he has also shown willingness and readiness to work for the benefit of our community, stressing the importance of taking care of our youth, their parents, and also the older members of our parish.
The Feast of the Nativity of Our Most Holy Lady, the Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary is celebrated on September 8 each year. The Feast commemorates the birth of the Mother of Jesus Christ, our Lord.
The birth and early life of the Virgin Mary is not recorded in the Gospels or other books of the New Testament, however this information can be found in a work dating from the second century known as the Book of James or Protevangelion.
The concerts of the Monastic Choir of St Elisabeth Convent from Minks, Belarus, reveal the traditions of Russian church singing based on the unity of life, prayer, and service. The programme of each concert consists of two parts. The first part includes worship hymns sung using ancient chants, marked by their refined and exalted nature. The second part consists of well-known and popular church songs and canticles, the beauty and wisdom of which lies in their simplicity and uniqueness.
Total duration of a concert is 45 minutes.
