In a terrible and sudden fire that broke out in the morning hours, The dormitory of the Vraćevšnica Monastery burned down. Old women live in the dormitory, who were all taken out on time, but unfortunately left without any personal belongings. Fire brigades arrived from Gornji Milanovac, Čačak and Kragujevac. The fire was extinguished, but with irreparable damage to the building.
“To the townspeople whom God quickly called to help, may St. George himself pay. They worked as one, both male and female, the people came in a hurry to save their monastery. Only thanks to the unity of the people and the sisters, God had mercy and stopped the fire. The poor old women were just praying and crossing the fire with icons” – says one of the sisters.
Their lives and all their possessions were burnt in those rooms. Together with masons, they built The dormitory with their own hands in 1981. And now, let them watch it burn when each of them is already well past 80 years old.
For those sisters who are younger, renewal is coming, and everyone who is able and is connected to their Church and the history of the Serbian people is asked to help as much as they can.
Abbess Xenia with all her sisters thanks and blesses
