New Set of Bells Arrives!

Thanks to a very generous benefactor, a full set of thirteen Russian bells has been donated to the monastery for the belfry of our new church. They were made at the largest bell foundry in Russia and are perfectly tuned.

The new bells arrived last week just before the start of the Vigil service for St. Sergius. The four largest bells will be kept in waiting until the new church is completed. The remaining nine bells will be hung in our current bell tower, and Constantine Stade of New Creation Bellringing will be coming later this month to provide instruction on how to ring them properly. Here is a video of Constantine playing the full set of bells that will eventually be installed in the new church:

We hope to break ground on the new church by the end of the month, and we will provide a major update on the project soon.

Though I do not have the money to donate, I offered prayers for you, to God Almighty.

May HIS Will be done for the monks.
AMEN.

In thanksgiving for the mercy of God and the overwhelming outpouring of prayer and financial support we received from so many of the faithful after the devastating ice storms in February, we will serve a special moleben of thansgiving and prayer for the sake of all those who came to our aid on Tuesday, March 23rd at noon Eastern (in place of Sixth Hour). As our internet connection issues appear to finally be resolved, we will plan to livestream this moleben for all who wish to join us in thanking God and asking Him to richly reward those who sacrificed their time and their material support for us unworthy sinners. Once again, thank you all so much for your love and your help!
