Nominated for a Grammy award for Best Choral Performance, The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom features the original work of composer, Dr. Kurt Sander. This landmark album is an English-language recording of Orthodox choral music, beautifully presented in a 2-disc format. Commissioned by PaTRAM Institute, it is the first and only complete setting of the Divine Liturgy in the English language. The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom is performed by the PaTRAM Institute Singers™ joined by soloists Evan Bravos, Keven Keys, Protodeacon Vadim Gan, Glenn Miller, and Daniel Shirley. The release was recorded and mastered by multi-Grammy winner and nominee, SoundMirror, under the superb leadership of conductor Maestro Peter Jermihov and is distributed by multi-Grammy recording company, Reference Recordings. PaTRAM Institute co-founders Alexis and Katherine Lukianov served as Executive Producers and singers. This new choral masterpiece was recorded under the magnificently frescoed, soaring cupolas of New Gracanica Church at the New Gracanica Serbian Orthodox Monastery outside Chicago.

UPDATE: as the virus continues to spread throughout the brotherhood, services in church are now being limited to the Hours only and will NOT be live-streamed. The exception will be Great Vespers on Saturday night at 6:30pm and Hours & Liturgy on Sunday at 9:00am, both of which will be broadcast.
As of Thursday, July 29 multiple members of the brotherhood have tested positive for COVID-19 and almost everyone has fallen ill. Therefore Fr. Seraphim has decided to close the monastery to visitors temporarily, and unfortunately we will have to cancel the public celebration of St. Panteleimon's Day on August 8/9.
Because we are very shorthanded, we will also be closing the store through the end of this week. Orders can continue to be placed either online or via phone message, and will be fulfilled as quickly as possible beginning Tuesday, August 3.
Thank you for your understanding, and please keep us in your prayers during this time.
