New Podcast Interview with Andrew Gould on the New Church

Ariane Montemuro, host of the St. Matrona Podcast, recently released a new interview with Andrew Gould, the designer of the monastery's new church. Andrew discusses the beautiful shrines he constructed for the monastery chapel a few years ago, as well as the philosophy behind his design for the new church.

The brotherhood thanks Ariane for producing this excellent video to raise awareness about the church project. May God reward her!
