Welcome, Victoria!

Please keep in your prayers our soon-to-be dokimos (postulant) Victoria Olsen! She will enter our community at Vespers for the Feast of the Protection of the Mother of God on September 30. Victoria comes to us from Denver, Colorado, where she was a parishioner of Holy Protection of the Mother of God Byzantine Catholic Church. She will be an enthusiastic, joyful addition to our community! Please pray for her as she begins this time of growth and discernment of the monastic life.


  1. Such JOYFUL news!! We are praying for Victoria!!

  2. So very exciting and yes it is joyful news indeed! Welcome to your new home, Victoria! It's a privilege to pray for you as you begin your journey, as well as for your other sisters there at the monastery as they continue with theirs.

    As I sit here in reflection at my kitchen table, St. Peter's impetuous yet sincere words from the gospel, directed towards Jesus, come to mind for each one of you precious young women:

    "We have left EVERYTHING to follow You" (emphasis mine). Amen, dear ones.
