Visit of Metropolitan Demetrius to Hermitage of St Clement 2015

On Tuesday, November 25/December 8, 2015, in an atmosphere of spiritual joy and compunction, His Eminence Metropolitan Demetrius of America and Archdeacon Agathangelus, visited the Hermitage of Saint Clement of Ochrid in Albany, Georgia. It has been over a year since His Eminence sent Hierodeacon Barsanuphius and Monk Anthony to live at the hermitage to help the local community.

This year's festival marked a special blessing with the baptisms of five local residents of Albany. The clergy had the opportunity to speak to others interested in Orthodoxy.

Prayers are asked for the newly illumined Neilos, Maria, Basil, Joshua, and Anastasios.

Morning and Evening Prayers

Q. Are the prayers in the blue prayer book [A Prayerbook for Orthodox Christians by the Holy Transfiguration Monastery —ed.] compulsory for everyone? I mean their morning prayers and the service of Small Compline. My confessor gave me a special rule but wasn’t clear about whether this replaced the book prayers or was in addition to them.
