The Monastery in Serres

Posted by Picasa

We arrived at the monastery when the gates re-opened at 4:30 and the nuns prepared a very nice meal for us.

Afterwards, we visited with Sister Katerini (an American, about our age, from Texas), then headed to Vespers at 6.

Afterwards, we stopped by the bookstore and had coffee and sweets with Sister Katerini until about 9:30, and then headed home.

Sister Katerini is currently working on making Greek children’s Pascha candles, which feature hand-painted designs and have toys attached to them. I don’t recall seeing anything like them in the US. Aaron bought two really neat ones for his children.
