"The Monastery Trapeza" Podcast Launches on Ancient Faith

May 17, 2019 2 Comments

The monastery has launched a new podcast through Ancient Faith Ministries!

"The Monastery Trapeza" features weekly highlights from the spiritual readings that are customarily read aloud during the brotherhood's meals—lives of saints, patristic homilies and spiritual articles timed according to the Church’s liturgical year.

Several episodes have aired already, the most recent of which is a homily by St. Nikolai Velimirovich for the Sunday of the Myrrh-bearers.

To listen to the podcast, visit our page on the Ancient Faith website, or subscribe through the iTunes store.

Listeners can contact trapeza@ancientfaith.com to provide feedback or ideas for the podcast.

It is our hope that you will be edified by these writings as much as we are.

Fathers may our God bless this ministry, it is so nice to hear the trapeza when one is 4 hours away (truthfully a short distance). I love what I have heard so far.

I would like to share with you the story of this project.

Architect Delivers Plans for the New Church

On Friday, September 27, our architect delivered to us his final proposed plans for the new church. The proposed new church is 92' x 48' internally, with a large covered wraparound porch bringing the total dimensions to approximately 110' x 70'. We estimate that the new church will comfortably fit numerous serving clergy and servers in the altar, 50 monastics in the stasidia, 150 faithful in the nave, an additional 50 faithful in the loft. There is also ample space in the covered porch (with the church doors open) in cases of very high attendance.
