From Sunrise to Sunset Avenue, heading west along with one of those gorgeous, tree-lined streets that you find all throughout the cozy community of Fair Oaks, look to your right after passing the sign for the cemetery. Turn your gaze upward toward the heavens. You will suddenly gasp as you see one of the most impressive and elegant examples of Eastern Orthodox Church architecture that you’ve ever seen on the West Coast. You will behold the house that Miladin built.

Since he arrived in 1960, Fr. Miladin Garic was the spiritual force behind the Serbian Orthodox community in the east Sacramento region. Fr. Miladin fell asleep in the Lord on Nov. 24th, 2015, and now lies next to his beloved wife, Nina, in a churchyard on a peaceful hillside facing the very first Serbian Orthodox Church in America, in Jackson, where he also served as a priest for several years.

Many committed members worked diligently in raising funds to pay off the mortgage of the Fair Oaks Church. We are deeply indebted to the founders of our church who had the vision and perseverance to establish a place of worship for us. We wish to express our gratitude to all those faithful people who, through their love and support, have made it possible for our parish to exist and grow into what it is today.
