On July 7, 2013, the Feast of St. Jonh the Baptist, in the town of Trebinje, His Grace, Bishop Maxim concelebrated the Divine Liturgy with fellow Hierarchs, His Grace, Bishop Gregory and His Grace, Bishop Atanasia. The Liturgy was attended by fifteen Orthodox Christians in several states (California, Colorado, Florida and Washington), who together with Bishop Maxim came to visit Herzegovina.
The little church was not nearly enough space to accommodate all believers, and was served in front of the temple. Follwing the services His Grace Bishop Gregory addressed the faithful. The hosts of this parish welcomed everyone with a wonderufl Luncheon on the hall next to the church.
