Chariton, was abducted. -Now - a spiritual center gathering the remaining Orthodox people from Prizren and around.

In Holy Archangels' Monastery Celebrated Monastery Patron Day

Prizren, July, 26th (Beta) - Today is festal celebrated Monastery Patron day of Holy Archangel Gabriel in Holy Archangels' Monastery near Prizren. Participants were 600 believers from whole Serbia.
On Holy Liturgy were serving monks of Ras-Prizren Diocese, and as emissary of Metropolitan of Montenegro and Littoral abbot Luka from Cetinje Monastery.
"All of them asked when the monastery will be reconstructed. I told them that someone are observing obstruction. No one came with "proclaimed" plan for reconstruction of burned dormitory at March 2004. None of destroyed churches in very city of Prizren are repaired." abbot of Holy Archangels Monastery Benedict told to Agency Beta.
"Coming of so many believers means that Serbian people remaining to be faithful to their cradle, holy places and Serbs didn't forget us the monks of Serbian Christian Church here in Kosovo", he said.
"So, there is hope that (regardless of abnormal conditions*) we can survive in this region", he added.
