Today is Orthodox Easter!
We went to all night service to the Panagia Prousiotissa - Greek Orthodox Monastery in Troy, NC. The monastery is part of 13 Orthodox Monastic communities in USA founded by the Elder Ephrem from Holy Mountain of Athos.
We are so fortunate to have two of them in North Carolina, in only 1 hour and 30 min from Winston-Salem.
Wonderful service, from 11 am until 4 am!
Nightingales were singing in the darkness when we came out of the church.
A lot of stars above!
