In his homily, Bishop Andronicus reminded us of the need to remain faithful to the Holy Orthodox Church in our times of trouble.  The bishop also spoke of the need to distance ourselves from the world and find spiritual nourishment in the monasteries for the salvation of our souls.
After the Liturgy, Bishop Andronicus blessed the new cross and dome on the gate, at the entrance to the monastery. 
This work was by the  master-carpenter  and patron, Dmitry Kichakovym.
