Mount Saviour Monastery

April 1998
Easter IconEaster Celebration:
Our Easter Triduum attracts many guests and local visitors.  The Easter Mass began at 4:45 a.m. with the blessing of the new fire and Pascal candle.  The 'Exsultet' followed by many readings and their responsories fills our mind with the history of our salvation.  For the next 50 days, the icon of the Resurrection is placed in front of the alter.

SheepLambing Season:
On April 15th, our 150 ewes started giving  birth.  The weather condition made the work easier and kept the problems to a minimum.  Many children come to see the new lambs and learn something about life.  At the end of April, we had 160 lambs and probably 40 more to come.

Annual Appeal:
At this time, we prepare our Annual Appeal to meet the needs of the monastery.  The roof of the chapel is the main concern, this year.  The roof has reached its normal wear and tear; Fr. Martin says more about it in the letter.
