New Rassophore-monk and Novice on the Feast of the Entry of the Theokotos 2016

The Hermitage has a new rassophore-monk, Fr. Theophil, and a new novice, Br. John. Archimandrite Seraphim performed the tonsure and the clothing after the Vigil for the Entrance of the Theotokos into the Temple.

Pray for our brothers, that they will persevere until the end!
