AXIOS! The Eparchy Celebrates a New Priest!

This Saturday we were blessed with the celebration of the ordination of Fr. Philip Gilbert.

Fr. Philip was baptized here at Mt. Tabor many years ago. Life has taken him to many places, including such exotic locales as Ukraine and Kansas, but he decided that home was the best place to be ordained.

The monks were joined by Fr. Philip's wife, Christina, 80 of his closest family and friends, seminary classmates, and local friends of the monastery.

The monks were overjoyed to witness and host this momentous occasion and pray that Fr. Philip's priesthood be ever-fruitful wherever the Holy Spirit, through Bishop Benedict will send him!


Many Happy Years!
