St Petka in Troy

St Petka is a gorgeous Serbian Orthodox Church adjacent to Troy Athens High School in the city of Troy. The building whose cornerstone was laid in 2003 immediately attracts attention with its multi-domed structure reaching the heigth of 70 feet. It is a gathering place for the people from the Serbian village of Vratranica, near the Bulgarian border. The founding father of St Petka, Stevan Petrovich, passed away earlier this year.  His grandson, Kristijan Petrovich, currently serves as the parish priest.
