Photos - Mother Efrosyne's Visit to the US

During Lent and Pascha 2010, Mother Efrosyne, Abbess of the New Stjenik Monastery (GOC) located in the Kučaj Mountains of Southern Serbia, visited the United States, seeking both to strengthen spiritual ties with the GOC in America and to obtain material support for her growing monastery, which requires some improvements owing to their difficult situation there. She made stops in various places, and visited both our parishes, and some parishes of the Russian True Orthodox Church.
