July 25 / Aug 7 2009 9th Friday after Pentecost
From our Diocesan website:
At the Diocesan Assembly held in March 2009 it was decided to establish an English language convent in the Diocese of Chicago & Mid-America. Since that time an ideal property with a church, a guest house, a dining hall, and a house has been pledged to the diocese in support of this effort. We ask that interested Orthodox women contact us to let us know of your desire to help us to establish this community. Once a sisterhood has been established an experienced nun will be assigned to teach the sisters the monastic life.
You may contact the diocese via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
