Easter (Mount Saviour Monastry)

During Holy Week, the lambing season began as we were celebration the Pascal Triduum.  New born lambs and the birth of a donkey were a distraction and an inspiration to the many visitors who joined us for the liturgy.  Many families bring their children to see the courage of new born lambs and the dedication of their mothers.  We received touching testimonials regarding the liturgy and our work .  We try to be good stewards of God's creation.  During the three weeks of lambing, 123 ewes gave birth to 228 lambs.
