Latest News!


*UPDATE 10.20.18: At 12 noon Friday, Oct 19th, an angioplasty was performed on our Abbot. After a lengthy hour procedure, and the stretching of a major artery, and an insertion of an additional stent, Fr. John was kept briefly in the specialty heart area. Fr. John was then moved in the regular area on the 2nd floor. There he remains until Saturday or whenever his pickup person can come get him. He has an IV and a SPECIAL dressing on his right wrist. It was through the wrist that the probe, camera and stent traveled through the circulatory system around the heart. Dr. Chambers did two things with the 80% blocked artery. One was to stretch it, the other was to place another stent. Fr. John is conscious, having some pain and discomfort. He is medicated as needed, being given morphine.

Please pray for Fr. John. He is not well and feels forgotten by some. For further information, contact Protodeacon Cavin on his cell phone.


*The Church of the Royal Martyrs at Ganina Yama in Yekaterinburg was damaged by fire on Monday night, October 1st. The arsonist was a student who placed two burning torches in between the wooden logs. The church will be taken apart and rebuilt elsewhere.


*Our insurance bill, which is due October 14th, is for $1,400.00. The monks need help with paying this large amount. If you can help, any contributions would be greatly appreciated, and given to Br. James, the Treasurer. Any small amount would be most helpful for this important insurance payment.








Holy Virgin Anastasia of Rome

Troparion ~ Tone 4

Your lamb Anastasia, calls out to You, O Jesus, in a loud voice: / “I love You, my Bridegroom, and in seeking You I endure suffering. / In baptism I was crucified so that I might reign in You, / and I died so that I might live with You. / Accept me as a pure sacrifice, / for I have offered myself in love.” / Through her prayers save our souls, since You are merciful.

Kontakion ~ Tone 3

Purified by the waters of virginity, / righteous Anastasia, you were crowned by the blood of martyrdom. / You grant healing and salvation to those in need, / and who call on you from their hearts, / for Christ gives you strength, pouring out on you ever-flowing grace!
