Great Lent 2017 & March Calendar Info

Dear Monastery Friends,
You will find our March calendar on the calendar page - a busy month ahead for all of us, full of many divine services, special gatherings and quiet opportunities to refocus on the "one thing needful."

Please note that we will mark the two year anniversary of the repose of Father Thomas Hopko on Saturday, March 18, at the Divine Liturgy and Memorial Service that day. If you can be with us, please plan to stay for a luncheon and time to share memories of Father Tom and our appreciation for his work in the church. Kindly let us know of your intentions to attend so that the meal may be planned accordingly.

We will also mark the 40th day of repose of Matushka Juliana Schmemann on Friday, March 10, with a Memorial Service and lunch, following the 10:00 Pre-Sanctified Liturgy that day.

Finally, please note that the monastery will be closed on Sunday evenings and on Mondays until 4:00 during Lent. This is to afford the sisterhood some quiet hours for reflection, rest and private time together as a spiritual family, during each of the busy weeks of Great Lent.

Pray for us and please forgive our sins and offenses.

May you have a most blessed Lent.

With love in Christ,
Mother Christophora
