Completion of Church in Potomac - 11/20/14

Potomac, MD - On Saturday and Sunday, November 1-2, 2014, in the capital of the United States, the Serbian community and all Orthodox Christians had cause for great celebration. Fifty-three years after the founding of the Serbian Orthodox parish of the Holy Apostle and Evangelist Luke in Washington DC, the Serbian community witnessed the completion of the construction of their new church in Potomac, Maryland, an exclusive suburb of Washington DC. After organization of the spiritual life of the flock in rented spaces and borrowed churches, and after many years of outgrowing a small chapel on 16th Street, NW, in Washington, the completion of the new church was accomplished after much anticipation as a center for our Orthodox Christian people who live in the mid-Atlantic region, especially Washington, DC and Baltimore.
