Sharing: Photos & description: Holy Thursday in ROCA's Women's Monastery of St. John Maximovitch, Egorovka, Ukraine
To English readers, sorry, but I have no time now to smooth out the
rough google machine-English version of this description. I must leave that
up to the readers, if they wish, i.e. to put this original Russian text through the machine translator,
and then...try to make sense of the rough 'English' [word jumble] which is produced by the mindless/soulless machine.
The bishop serving here is Archbishop George of Bolgorad.
This monastery is near Odessa. It was originally founded near Omsk, Siberia, [with Bp. Eutichius], before that sad & foolish & connived 2007 betrayal of a large segment of the old ROCOR to the Stalin founded MP. Those original noble Omsk nuns, lead by heroic Mother Abbess Alexandra, had to literally flee to Odessa, Ukraine, and to take refuge under Vladyka Agafangel's omophorion. Here they have prospered, with God's help and by the aid of caring Orthodox benefactors, whom MAY GOD RICHLY BLESS!
