Sister Theoktisti’s talk

Sister Theoktisti of the Monastery of Saint John the Forerunner, on Mount Ossa, near Larissa, gave a most interesting talk to the Friends of Mount Athos on 6 April. Sister Theoktisti described life in the Monastery today. She said that visits to the Monastery, and sales of their produce at markets, have stopped during the last year, but they have been able to keep going by delivering orders for their produce. She also told us about the new cells they are having to build for the nuns and novices who have joined them recently, and about their sister monastery in Estonia. Although poor reception prevented a good video link, the audio recording is excellent. It can be watched and listened to here .
