On Sunday, March 26, after the evening service in the packed Church of the Holy Apostle and Evangelist Luke in Liverpool, Sydney, a Lenten lecture was held in the church hall.
Father Aleksandar Ivanović, Prothovicar of the Church of Saint Archdeacon Stefan in Ruta Hil, addressed the gathering.
In a very informative lecture, Father Aleksandar spoke on the topic “Faith – the foundation of life”, which the attendees followed carefully and learned a lot of new things.
The hosts of the spiritual evening, the elder of the Liverpool sanctuary, Protovicar Aleksandar Milutinović, members of the administration and valuable members of the local Circle of Serbian Sisters, proved to be good hosts.

Deaf Week of Lent
On Monday, the Fifth Sunday of Lent began, which is called Deaf or Deaf, because fasting has moved on a lot, so now comes the time of silence and repentance, the so-called – deaf time.
It is dedicated to the venerable Mary of Egypt, a great sinner, but also a great penitent. On Deaf Sunday, the church forbids all celebrations, concerts, songs and parties. You don’t go on a trip, you don’t do big jobs, you don’t drive cattle to pasture, you don’t even go to mobs.
In order for people not to be lazy in their spiritual endeavors, the church during the three days of the fifth week: Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, provides the believers with special incentives towards the feats of grace.
