Blessing & Grand Opening of New Candle Factory

After more than three years of waiting, the new candle factory was finally blessed following Divine Liturgy on the Feast of St. Xenia - always regarded by Mother Theodora as the heavenly patron of her convent.

Father Joseph, Mother Theodora and crew began work in the new candle factory in the afternoon.

Many thanks to all who so generously contributed to make this possible!
