      Mother Ines of Guatemala
      Mother Ines was born in 1951 into a happy family of six children in Guatemala. She attended a Roman Catholic nun's school. For some years she studied architec- ture both in Guatemala and in Indianapolis.
      In 1971, Mother Ines joined the Roman Catholic nuns in Gua- temala. Mother has a degree in theology: her studies took her to Mexico, Paris, Belgium, El Salvador, the Philippines, Jerusalem as well as at home in Guatemala. Those years of study brought Mother to the Orthodox faith.
      On April 30, 1986, Mother Ines left the Roman Catholic congregation to found an Orthodox mona-stery in Gua- temala. She was received by His Emi-nence Archbishop Antonio of the Antiochian Church, tonsured and installed as the Igumeni (Abbess) of the Orthodox Monastery of the Holy Trinity.
      Mother Ines devotes her life to the care of her Orphan- age which has regular volunteers from North America helping out in different ways. Building a large cathedral, a new building for the orphanage and looking after the daily needs of the monastery are all enterprises and responsibili- ties that Mother Ines administers with joy, creativity, love and a lot of energy!
      In 2013 Saint Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary bestowed an Honorary Doctoral Degree to Mother Ines. The growth of the Orthodox Church in Guatemala is at its beginning stage, it will continue its growth according to the will of God and for His glory.
