Dear in Christ,

I am travelling to Holy Ascension Monastery (GOC) in Bearsville/Woodstock, NY tonight. Please pray for me as I make the 10 hour drive from my house at night.  I drive overnight to avoid traffic but it is someetimes scary if I get sleepy. There are plenty of places to pull over but still, it can be nerve racking.

I will be gone until Sunday night, and Sunday night I will be home late.  Monday I start a new job, and so realistically you probably won't hear from me until Monday night. Of course, I may have to pop in and check on things anyway Wink

As Robert has been dealing with work a lot I am leaving Fr Chris in charge. Email all the usual comments, complaints, and reported posts to the forum section moderators, their GM's, or him.  He will call me should anything dramatic happen.

I will pop in a few more times before I leave tonight but otherwise see ya all Monday night.

I'm back safe and sound but tired as heck. The monastery was great, and I also saw our Geronda Metropolitan Pavlos who had the stroke, and he is doing better, and I was able to attend liturgy at our Cathedral as well. A very nice few days. Thanks for your prayers for my safe travel.

It was full of blessings. I enjoyed chanting in the monastery as they let me help out for practice.  I also was able to partake of the Holy Mysteries which is rare for me at the current time.  My spiritual Father and I had a long talk, and participating in the liturgy on Sunday made time stand still...so all in all, it was wonderful.

At the monastery it is 50/50 Greek/English and in the Cathedral it is all Greek except the Gospel and one of the sermons.  The Cathedral does have all-English liturgy once a month in the basement and we are praying that it will increase in attendance. We are supportive of English but Astoria is a unique situation in that the vast majority of people in our Church there are recent Greek immigrants or first or second generation Greek.
