Between celebrating the Apodosis of Mid Pentecost yesterday and with the month of May almost at its end we are nearing the end of the season of Spring, and the flowers at the monastery are blooming everywhere, especially including the foxgloves.
Went around the monastery this morning to take photos of the various blooms for all to see, selecting areas around the courtyard, the gardens and the outlying areas among others. ˆˆ
Please keep our small community in your prayers!
With the beginning of Great Lent just around the corner it is no surprise that we have been receiving more prayer ropes than usual….
We are happy to announce that we are also offering 150 knot prayer ropes, whether made of wool or of satin cord.
We are also offering “Mount Athos style” prayer ropes in 33 or 50 knot sizes – these prayer ropes are made so they do not have to be stretched out for those who prefer this.
Visit us for these and the traditional prayer ropes we have been providing customers for already at:
