Dormition Plans


We are planning on going to the Annual Pilgrimage to Dormition Monastery in Rives Junction, Michigan. We are going on the 15th. There are people from both St. John Chrysostom and St. Nicholas who will be going also.  It will be our first time visiting a monastery and I'm looking forward to it. There will be several services and there will also be a Memorial Trisagion for our priest, the Archpriest George who was laid to rest on the monastery grounds.

Hi... goodness; I am having the hardest time commenting... trying again... (It showed that the comment was published twice so I deleted one and then both were gone!!) ...

It is so wonderful that you get to go to this feast at the monastery! My second communion as an Orthodox Christian was there on their feast day (I was chrismated in MI and went along with friends)...

So wonderful that you are blessed to go their on the special anniversary year! I am sure it will be a blessing to you! I wish I could be there! What a mercy of God that you can go... :)

Elizabeth, when we were making plans I was wondering whether you might be going also! I'm sorry that we won't get to meet but I will be thinking of you!

Also, I don't know why the comments are being goofy. They've been giving me a hard time too. :(
