Talk by Sister Theoktisti on April 6th
Many members will have met or heard Sister Theoktisti at one of the meetings or pilgrimages of the Friends. She is an English Orthodox nun, and has been at the Monastery for many years, since before it moved from its previous site near the airport of Athens to the present one, 1000 metres up the slopes of Mount Ossa, near Larissa.
The nuns restored a ruined monastery that had been abandoned by a group of monks as too difficult, and since then have gone from strength to strength, building a new church, restoring and conserving the original one, becoming nearly self-sufficient in energy, and establishing a successful market for their agricultural and dairy products. More information about them can be found here http://www.saintjohns-monastery.gr/?lang=en .
Sister Theoktisti will talk on April 6th 2021, at 6pm about the work of, and the spiritual life in, the monastery. There will be an opportunity to ask questions afterwards.
