New Skete (OCA) - Cambridge NY

Holy Myrhhbearers Monastery (OCA) - Otego NY (OCA)

Holy Myrhhbearers Monastery is a stavropegial women’s community of the OCA founded in 1977. The abbess, Mother Raphaela was gracious enough to allow me to photograph there.

Cambridge - August 8, 2009

These are some photos that I shot at New Skete’s Annual Pilgrimage in honor of the Holy Transfiguration. It was a truly spiritual day that was well-attended. Dr Peter Boutenoff of Saint Vladimir’s Seminary delivered an edifying talk later in the day.
