Blog postponed

Dear Readers,

Abbot Tryphon had a tumble today and hit his head while out hiking with the Salish Brotherhood of St. John the Wonderworker.

He is being checked out at the hospital.  A head scan came back clear, so we are very thankful for that. But he does have a small fracture below his eye.

Please don’t call the monastery for updates. We will post here and on his Facebook account. We are very grateful for all your support, love and prayers.
