On Saturday, April 1, we will have pilgrimage to the Holy Protection Monastery, White Haven, PA. Everyone who would like to join us should contact (if you haven't already done so) Father Aleksey at 973-256-0314, as soon as possible.
We plan to meet at the monastery parking lot at 10am.
A tour of the monastery will be provided for us.
We will have lunch there at around 1:30pm.
We will also be able to pray a Moleben to the Theotokos.
The address of the monastery is

Please also read the rules about visiting the monastery. Monasteries are not just a different kind of parishes. These are strict monastic communities, which follow ascetic practices. They welcome all visitors, but ask that we treat them and their rules with respect.
Especially pay close attention to the requirements concerning clothing:
"Women are kindly asked to wear skirts below the knee and sleeved shirts (no pants, shorts, mini-skirts, sleeveless blouses, etc.). Men are asked to wear long pants and sleeved shirts. If you come unprepared, we will be glad to provide you with the necessary clothing."
Unless otherwise specified, the articles here are posted by Fr Aleksey, who has no sense of humor and is extremely straight forward.
