It has been very quiet here at the monastery and Father Shio is away in Calgary where he will serve a liturgy tomorrow, then he will fly back to Abbotsford. Joanna dropped in, bring us presents and coffee, and also wondering why the monastery seemed to be deserted. I am sure that things will get lively tomorrow and especially so on Sunday when we will have a Yolka, or a children’s programme after the Agape meal. Lilia phoned this morning to say that all was ready and organized, and the group of actors will be here, ready to make their presentation. It is always such an enjoyable event, and one that I am certainly looking forward to see.
