Bishop Longin Blesses the Foundation Stone

Updated: Sep 11

Bishop Longin recently visited the monastery site to bless the foundation stone of the chapel, which is named for St. Mardarije. This is an important milestone in the history of the monastery. Please pray for Christ's continual blessing upon this project, for the intercession of Mary, the Mother of God and St. Mardarije. Please also consider donating.
