Details for Christmas Eve Day and collecting the Badnjak on Jan 6

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

On Christmas Eve day, January 6th, the Divine Liturgy will be served at 10AM, followed by the blessing of the Badnjak (Yule log), which has been provided, as each year, by our volunteers by their selfless efforts.

Parishioners will be able to come and pick up their Badnjak branch between 12-6PM that day handed out by the on-duty volunteer: The Badnjak branches will not be distributed after 6PM!

In order to decrease the number of vehicles, we recommend that our parishioners plan to also pick up the Badnjak branch on behalf of their friends and family too.

Donations prepared in an envelope can also be handed in at that time to the volunteers at the property, or they can be sent by e-transfer at, or mailed in to the address St. Archangel Gabriel Serbian Orthodox Church, 49 North Lake Rd, P.O. Box 2918, Richmond Hill, ON, L4E 1A8

Parishioners unable to come that day, or who have no one to bring the Badnjak branch for them should reach out to Fr. Ljubo at 416-828-4447.

The quota for the Christmas Eve Vespers starting at 6PM that day is already full!

On Christmas day, January 7, as well as on the Second Day of Christmas, January 8, the Divine Liturgy will be held at 10AM.

On the Third Day of Christmas, January 9, is the Feast of St. Stephen the Protomartyr, so those that celebrate their Krsna Slava can bring their Kolivo for blessing and Slavski Kolach for breaking between 8AM-12PM before or after the Divine Liturgy, which will be held at 10AM.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
