A Beautiful Autumn at the Monastery

"Bless the Lord, O my soul!  Lord my God, how great You are, clothed in majesty and glory, wrapped in light as in a robe...How wonderful are Your works, O Lord.  In wisdom you have made them all!" (Psalm 103)

We were blessed with a particularly beautiful fall this year in Burton, Ohio.  This area is known for it's many maple trees, and they were radiant!  We thought you might enjoy these photos that we took on the monastery grounds, plus a photo from our fall work day.

Our annual fall work day took place on Saturday, October 6.  Even though we had a smaller crew than usual, we accomplished a lot of work!  With the help of these volunteers, we cleaned and assembled metal storage shelving for our garage and storage room, organized the other garage, installed brick edging around some of the landscaping in the front yard, raked leaves and accomplished other various projects.  We closed the day with Great Vespers and a potluck dinner.  Thank you to all who helped out!
