Serb priest holds first
Orthodox Divine Liturgy in Seychelles
MAYOTTE OF MY HEART
We aren’t used to hearing news of our ancient Orthodox faith growing in recent years but here is a welcome exception. Seychelles has welcomed in a Serb priest for the newly arrived Orthodox faith. His name is Father Srđan Jasenović and he serves a Greek Orthodox parish which is why he is also called Father Sergios. His opening Divine Liturgy in the English langauge and it was attended by Seychellois, Greek, Russian, Ukranian, Romanian and Serbian believers with hymns in Greek and Russian too!
The liturgy was attended by the Russian Ambassador to Seychelles, Mikhail Ivanovich Kalinin, the Commanding Officer of the Greek Navy frigate H.S. Limnos, Commander Yiannis Partsalivis as well as the Honorary Consul of Serbia to Seychelles, Dr. Miodrag Todorovic.
Father Srđan is a naturalised Seychellois and lived and worked there for JAT and then Air Seychelles before retiring in 2008 and taking up the priesthood.
Seychelles, the beautiful archipelago of more than a hundred islands lies on the Indian Ocean east of the southern African mainland. At just less than 100,000 people it is the least populous African country. If you are lucky enough to take a holiday in this beautiful region, why not attend Father Srđan’s Liturgy?
