A New Kind of Resurrection Part 1

A New Kind of Resurrection Part 1

As I sat outside on my porch this chilly morning, I was admiring the soft, subtle, and quiet way the sun comes up here in Wisconsin.

Holy Week and Pascha with Our Family

Holy Week and Pascha with Our Family

The monastery is not on the Gregorian calendar but on the revised Julian calendar for Pascha (Easter) so it isn’t Holy Week for us until next week.
