United City Church

Welcome to United City Church, a community of individuals joined by their faith and beliefs. We invite you to join us for a special memorial service, Zadusnice, held at St. Sava. This spiritual event holds significant importance in our community as we come together to honor and remember our loved ones who have passed away.

What is Zadusnice?

Zadusnice, also known as All Souls' Day, is a Serbian Orthodox memorial service held twice a year, once in the spring and once in the autumn. It is a time for reflection, prayer, and remembrance of our deceased family members and friends. The word "Zadusnice" itself translates to "Soul Saturdays." On this day, we gather at St. Sava to pay tribute to those who have passed and to find solace in spiritual unity.

The Significance of Zadusnice

Zadusnice holds deep cultural and spiritual significance within the Serbian Orthodox community. It is an opportunity to express our love and respect for our departed loved ones, ensuring they are not forgotten and their memories are cherished. The service provides a sense of connection and support, as we come together as a united community to offer prayers and reflect on the lives of those who have touched our hearts.
