The Feast of Theophany was wonderful. It is exciting to celebrate major feasts like Theophany in our newly renovated chapel because we get to spend so many hours in such a beautiful space. We are continually so grateful for all of your support of our life which makes this possible. We processed around the property to each poustinia and the monastery singing the Theophany troparion countless times as each room was blessed with Jordan Water. We had a nice dusting of snow which made it all a little more beautiful.
Monastery of St. Mary and St. John the Beloved. We've had a good relationship with the nuns there for years, and it was so good to get to spend time with our sisters in monastic life. We had lunch together and then prayed with them in their chapel. Then, they showed us their new monastic church and their wood shop. It was really nice to pray with them and talk with them and just be together.
This week, some finishing touches are happening in our chapel, like shoe molding and hanging some more icons.
We pray daily:
6:30am - Matins (except on Fridays)
12:00pm - 1st, 3rd, 6th, or 9th Hour
