On Monday the 15th of July, just before our patronal feast of St. Elizabeth the New Martyr, Bishop Nicolai visited the skete with the Holy Kursk Icon of the Mother of God. After a molieben and akathist in the skete's chapel Hieromonk Gavriil blessed all the houses. Then we proceded to the new property. The house with the Iveron chapel was blessed after which we continued to the future building site of the monastery.
We feel very blessed, that all three icons of the Mother of God have now visited the new property and building site.
Besides the Kursk icon, both the Hawaiian Iveron and the Softener of evil hearts icons of the Most Holy Mother of God.
