Francene Samaras Foster and Ariane at one of several exhibition opportunities for Ariane’s book, blog discussion and support of The Decani Monastery Relief Fund.
Ariane with the Gramota she received in 2014. The award document read: “For all that she has done as a board member of the Decani Monastery Relief Fund in helping the Church of Christ and especially the suffering Serbian Orthodox Christians in Kosovo-Methohia.” Paintings pictured with her are, left to right, “Apostolic Succession” and “St. Nikolai (Nikolaj) Velimirović, Apostle from Lelic.”
In July 2016, Ariane received the blessing of His Grace Bishop Longin to publish her book, “I Shall Remember Thy Holy Name from Generation to Generation,” which shares her personal journey and awakening to the beauty of the history of her Serbian parents and ancestors, and most of all her faith. Pictured left to right are: Father Serafim Baltic, Abbott of New Gracanica Monastery, His Grace Bishop Longin, New Gracanica and Midwestern American Diocese of the Serbian Orthodox Church, Ariane, and Father Marko Matic, parish priest at St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church in Merrillville, Indiana.
