Your parish is very blessed to have her come and speak.  She was our guest speaker at our Lenten retreat about 8 years ago and she is very dynamic and entertaining.  I could have listened to her for hours more. 
On the spiritual path somewhere between the Simpsons and St. Theophan the Recluse, but I still can't see the Springfield city limits sign yet.

I pray it will bear  fruit to the glory of God. That some will be brought to Orthodoxy, that she will help encourage & enlighten us in our faith, that new life will be instilled into the Orthodox churches in our region.

What an opportunity. She is truly a gifted writer.

In case by some long shot someone had intended to attend her appearance, it has been regretfully cancelled. Frederica's mother is severely ill and perhaps near death (do not know specifics). Lord have mercy on Frederica's mother, Frederica, family & all affected.

I'm sorry to hear of the cancellation.  I hadn't plan to attend myself, but I had heard about the planned visit.  May the Lord grant great mercy to her mother and entire family right now.
