Serbian Orthodox saint was born in Indiana
CWN - November 10, 2010
The Serbian Orthodox community in Gary, Indiana, is planning a service in honor of Bishop Varnava Nastic (1914-64), the first US-born saint of the Serbian Orthodox Church.
Bishop Nastic’s family moved to Yugoslavia in 1923. Consecrated a bishop in 1947, the prelate was imprisoned by the nation’s Communist regime and may have died by poisoning.
