Two New Novices on the Feast of the Beheading of the Forerunner

At the end of the Vigil service for the feast of the Beheading of St. John the Baptist, our two newest monastic candidates were clothed as Novices—John Gregory, from California, and Ephraim Hernandez, from Florida. After the short ceremony, Archimandrite Seraphim reminded them that, in the troubled times our world is currently experiencing, what is needed above all else is more men of prayer. Please pray for them as they take this next step on their monastic journey!

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!
