Burial of Nadya Sill at the Monastery

On Friday, November 2nd, the funeral was served for Nadezhda Sill at Christ the Savior Orthodox Church in Wayne, WV, following which she was buried in the lay cemetery of the Hermitage of the Holy Cross. Eighteen years ago Nadia, together with her husband Moe, donated the land in Wayne at which the Hermitage now resides. This property had been their home for thirty years, and it is with much gratitude that the brotherhood welcomes Nadia home until the day when the Lord returns to call her, along with all the faithful, to our homeland in the heavens.
