Saint Silouan Monastery - St Mars de Locquenay France - Exarchate of Parishes of the Russian Tradition - Ecumenical Patriarchate

This dual monastery is located about 30 minutes from LeMans France and was founded in 1990, by Archimandrite Symeon, the present abbot. The abbot and community were exceptionally hospitable and I look forward to being there again.

St Mars de Locquency- July 28, 2012

Archimandrite Symeon and the community at Saint Silouan Monastery were gracious enough to host me for four days. I was there mainly to shoot the Krug festal icon set, but got a chance to shoot these photos also.
