Now we finally have a place as well as a chaplewhere we can offer prayers for our dear departed loved ones. As it is our custom, before every endeavor, we cross ourselves and pray to God, asking Him to be with us in good times and in troubled and in all of life’s conditions. Thus, today we have blessed this chapel invoking the grace and blessing of God. “

“You have made me very happy with the news that you are opening the first Serbian Orthodox funeral home in Chicago. This need has long been felt among our faithful in America. Now they are blessed. There will be someone who will escort them from the earthly to the heavenly Serbia, with dignity and in accordance with the St. Sava tradition. And what a name: “Sveta Gora”! It’s almost easy for a person to want to move into this piece of heaven on earth as soon as possible and into the most sacred Serbian corner, which you have chosen as a symbol of your funeral home. “
