Serbs for Serbs received Order of Gornjokarlovac Diocese


On Saturday, March 19, on St. Teodor’s Day, at Komogovina monastery near Kostajnica in Croatia, on the initiative of Bishop Gerasim of the Upper Karlovac Diocese, the order of Saint New Martyrs of Upper Karlovac was solemnly awarded to the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs. The Order was received by President Igor Rasula together with members of the organization, who came from Belgrade especially for this occasion. This great honor, which the Serbian Orthodox Church bestowed upon the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs, followed after numerous charity aid actions intended for returnee families in Slavonija, Banovina, Kordun, Lika, and Dalmatia over the last several years.

After receiving the Order of Saint Sava, which was awarded to the organization Serbs for Serbs in Gracanica, on Vidovdan 2015, by Patriarch Irinej, the Order of Saint New Martyrs of Upper Karlovac is the highest decoration received from a Diocese of the Serbian Orthodox Church. Actions speak louder than words, and charity actions in the Upper Karlovac Diocese definitely did not go unnoticed. Gratitude of the people who have received aid from the organization over the last several years was also recognized by the Serbian Church, which rewarded the benevolence and zeal with this Order.
