Holy Myrhhbearers Monastery - 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.

Otego - June 21, 2012

As part of an Orthodox clergy brotherhood trip, Mother Raphaela, the abbess was gracious enough to host us. As part of the visit I was able to photograph some of the nuns in worship, hosting the clergy, as well as the farm that they run as part of the monastery.
