Painting by Bill YankalunasMount Saviour Monastery

July 2007

A friend of the monastery, Bill Yankalunas, helped us over the years with his talents in landscaping and some carpentry works.  He has a special hobby, painting in a unique style.  He likes to use subjects from the monastery: sheep, landscape and our buildings to show details of our environment.  Here is one of his latest works.  He donates his works as a contribution for the needs of the monastery.  The month of July was a difficult period for our sheep because of the many visits by coyotes.  Our donkeys and llama could not see the damage of such clever animals.  Our summer program was canceled due to the lack of candidates.  We were pleased to welcome for one month 2 observers interested in our life style.  Br. Bruno and Br. Thomas completed the hay harvest during this dry weather
