On this great Feast of the Transfiguration, we are overjoyed to announce the tonsuring of our two dokimoi (postulants) as rasophore nuns on September 7! During Vespers for the Feast of the Nativity of the Mother of God, Jacqueline and Motria will be clothed in the monastic habit, belt, riassa (robe) and skufia (hat) and receive a new monastic name. Please keep them in your prayers as they prepare for this next step in their monastic formation!
All are invited to join us for Vespers:
