Mount Saviour Monastery

January 2017
On the solemnity of the Epiphany, January 6th, the monks were invited to St. Gertrude's Guest House for a "royal dinner" prepared by Eve Davila and her friends.  It was a time to celebrate and relax at the end of the Christmas season.  For the week-end of Jan. 13th, the annual knitters' retreat took place and on Sunday, the monks were able to share a meal with the participants.  They shared tricks of the trade and spent time to enjoy various crafts that are related to wool.  A few days later, Sara (Chali) Govantes who is living in St.John's apartment fell and had to spend the rest of the month in the hospital.  She is now living in Elmira with some friends until she can move to New Jersey to live with her son Pedro Pablo.
