G. Jeffrey MacDonald of The Living Church recently wrote an article about the ongoing relationship between The General Theological Seminary and the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of St. Sava, whose church building was gutted in a fire in May. From the article:
From the ashes of a May 1 inferno that destroyed the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of St. Sava in Lower Manhattan, a new Episcopal-Orthodox relationship blossoms at The General Theological Seminary.
St. Sava began holding weekly Sunday services May 22 in the Chapel of the Good Shepherd at GTS. The rent-free arrangement provides a Sabbath sanctuary for 100 to 200 congregants, who do not know what caused the blaze.
“It’s really a joy to have them,” said the Very Rev. Kurt H. Dunkle, Dean and President of General Seminary. “It’s never a sacrifice to extend hospitality.”
