      Holy Transfiguration Monastery to hold pilgrimage August 5-6


      The nuns of the Orthodox Monastery of the Transfiguration here extend an
      invitation to all faithful to join them for their annual pilgrimage
      marking their patronal feastday August 5-6, 2013.

      Among the hierarchs slated to attend are His Eminence, Archbishop
      Nathaniel; His Grace, Bishop Melchisedek; and His Grace, Bishop John of
      the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America.

      The festal Vigil will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, August 5, followed
      by supper at 9:00 p.m. On Tuesday, August 6, the procession to the
      monastery chapel pavilion and the Divine Liturgy will begin at 9:30
      a.m., followed by the blessing of Fruit. A catered lunch will be served
      at noon, after which there is time to enjoy the monastery grounds and
      shop in the store and other specialty tables. A presentation about the
      ministry of International Orthodox Christian Charities will be made by
      Lou Zagami at 2:00 p.m. At 2:30 p.m., the blessing of the new bell
      tower foundation, followed by the celebration of the Sacrament of Holy
      Unction with anointing of all pilgrims, will be celebrated. The day will
      conclude with the celebration of Vespers at 6:00 p.m.

      The pilgrimage will provide an opportunity for the faithful to see the
      many improvements that have been made to the monastery facilities. A
