Feast of St. Demetrius the Great Martyr (a day late)
Owing to some strong Serbian connections via Petar, my Great-Grand-Godfather; there is a large body of us at SMM that celebrated yesterday as our slava. (Pete also usually observes the Old Calendar date with his blood relations). Petar's family has kept the feast of St. Demetrius as the patron of their house since at least the 10th century.
