Update on the Transfer of Fr. Kallistos' Remains

The Hermitage extends special thanks to all who gave toward the project to move the remains of our founder from Missouri and erect a monument for him in the new monastic cemetery. With God's help the goal has been reached, and the transfer is planned for a time in January to be determined. There will be a blessing of the new monument later in the spring, the date of which will be announced as soon as it has been decided.

For those who wish to make a pilgrimage to the monastery in honor of this occasion, please plan to attend the blessing of the monument in the spring rather than the transfer of the remains in January.

Thank you again for all of your prayers and support!
