Icon of St. Silouan the Athonite There is a big distinction between merely believing that God exists, seeing Him in nature or in the Scriptures, and knowing the Lord by the Holy Spirit.St. Silouan the Athonite
Lenten Prayer of St. Ephraim the Syrian

O Lord and Master of my life,Take from me the spirit of sloth, despair, lust of power and idle talk.
But give rather the spirit of chastity, meekness of mind, patience and love to Thy servant.
Yea O Lord and King, grant me to see my own transgressions and not to judge my brother, for blessed art thou unto ages of ages. Amen.

Ground Breaking - July 1, 2007

View Slideshow

We held our ground breaking on July 1. This includes prayers to bless the ground and sprinkling with Holy Water to dedicate the site. For better or worse, we had plenty of water, as the start of prayers coincided with a torrential downpour. So, we did not get as many photos as we had wanted, but it was memorable!
