Off we go...

Mary (Dawn) and I are headed to Goldendale to the St. John the Forerunner Monastery for 2 nights. I'm really excited as this is my second pilgrimage, the first was one year ago on the same 1st weekend of Lent, and this is Mary's first pilgrimage to the monastery. (At the monastery you typically go by your patron saint name.)

Please pray for safe travel as we travel over 3 mountain passes.

How was your time at St. John's Monastery?

Sorry that Juliana couldn't join you this time 'round.

We were just given a jar of nectarine jam from St. John's. It is gone. 'Nuf said. ;-)

We've been planning a trip to the monastery for....sometime....but being out of nectarine jam has made me think that perhaps a quick 2 hour trip is in order....then 2 hours back of course!

Glory to God, we had safe travels and a blessed visit. Thank you, Sophia, for the idea, and for driving, and for wonderful conversation. I've just gotten home from picking up Nani, had a nice visit with Father and Matushka and drank tea.
