Christmas celebrated at Serbian Presidency
BELGRADE -- Orthodox Christmas, January 7, was celebrated in the Serbian Presidency building or the first time after the Second World War.
On the second day of Christmas, when the Assembly of the Holy Virgin is marked, Serbian President Tomislav Nikolić was the host of the ceremony in the presidency building in downtown Belgrade.
The ceremony was served by heads of the Cathedral Church Proto-presbyter Stavrophor Petar Lukić and Proto-presbyter Mile Milijančević of the Ascension Church which holds patronage over the Presidency building.
"May Our Lord bless this home and lend strength to the president to adopt wise and brave decisions for the sake of the Serbian people at these turbulent and delicate times," Milijančević said.
The prayer service was accompanied by the performance of the Belgrade First Singing Society as the choir of the Cathedral Church which was decorated by Nikolić by the medal for its contribution to culture.
The ceremony was attended by president's wife, Dragica Nikolić, his advisers and associates, and editors of media outlets.
