On Sunday, January 15, a group of about 40 members of our Orthodox Church in Korea of Slavic background visited our Monastery of the Transfiguration of the Lord in Gapyeong, along with Rev. Father Roman Kavchak and participated in the Divine Liturgy, after which a special memorial service was held at the Tomb of the late Metropolitan Sotirios.
A little later the Service of the Blessing of the Waters took place. The ceremony was held in the nearby river despite the falling snow.
Finally, before departing for Seoul, all the faithful worked to clean and tide up the interior and exterior of the Monastery. In all, it was an unforgettable experience for everyone!
