Protojerej-Stavrophor Stevan Petrovich Reposes in the Lord

On Sunday, January 23rd, our Lord called his servant Protojerej-Stavrofor Stevan Petrovich into eternal repose. He was 91 years old. Fr. Stevan was the spiritual founder and long-time parish priest of the Serbian Orthodox Church of St. Petka – “Vratnica” in Detroit.  He was well-known among the clergy and the faithful for his fierce confession of Christ under Communist torture, his fiery sermons, and unwavering faith.

May our God, Who manifested Himself on the river Jordan, receive the soul of His faithful servant priest Stevan into His Kingdom and grant him Memory Eternal!

Funeral Services will be on Friday, January 28th, at 7 p.m. at St. Petka Serbian Orthodox Church in Troy, Michigan.   Hierarchical Divine Liturgy on Saturday, Jan. 29th, at 9 a.m. followed by burial-interment.  The clergy are asked to bring white vestments.
