You may have heard that a tornado hit the Antiochian Village Camp and St Thekla Monastery on Friday, June 1st at approximately 5:20 PM. Thanks to our gracious and loving God, the members of our staff were in St Ignatius Church at the time praying the Paraklesis to the Mother of God when the tornado struck. No one was hurt. However there is extensive damage at the camp. We have hundreds of trees down and eighteen of our buildings were impacted by the tornado and tree debris. We have already started the clean up process. We have much work to do to get the camp back in shape. Please keep us in your prayers. We will provide updates as we have more information.

I guess it's a good thing Orthodoxy doesn't have it's Pat Robertson/Jerry Falwell equivalency; this could be read as a 'sign'.

Lord, have mercy!

A sign that could be read either way.

Tornado destroys ecumenist stronghold of cult of personality

Or

Orthodox children saved from tornado by praying to the Mother of God, thus proving the true faith.

Well, obviously those in the Church praying the Supplication to the Theotokos were saved.

Guess that is not too obvious, after all. [Shakes head.]

I live fairly close to Antiochian Village, and I didn't see much else on the local news that was damaged in the area. Hmmm... police

Horrific pictures.

Interesingly enough there are two things to consider here. 1) Pittsburgh rarely, emphasis on "rarely", gets severe weather. 2) If there was a tornado in the Pittsburgh area, it would be all over the news.

Looks to be very West of the Burgh.
