Reception of habit in the monastery of Saint Paul -Italy
Monastery in “El Pueyo”
Yesterday we celebrated the feast of Nuestra Señora del Pueyo (Our Lady of El Pueyo). We held a procession from the cave of San Balandrán, the shepherd to whom Our Lady appeared in the year 1001. At the halfway point the standard of the Benedictine martyrs joined the procession, making its first appearance. It was embroidered by the SSVM contemplatives of Velletri, Italy. Before Mass there was the blessing of a majolica (Italian-style earthenware) which commemorates the apparition of Our Lady and at the end of the Celebration we had the traditional blessing of bread.

We would like to thank God for all the blessings we have received on the occasion of the visit of the Apostolic Nuncio for the Russian Federation, Mons. Celestino Migliore, and of our bishop, with other events.
Saturday, April 6th, our bishop, Monsignor Clemens Pikkel, graced our community with his presence for the occasion. At midday he celebrated Holy Mass in one of our communities, Karsun, a town that we serve which is two hours away. In this town there are 13 Armenian families, a community that we visit every Sunday. During the Holy mass, which we celebrated in the room of an apartment, since there is no chapel in that city, five young people were able to receive the sacrament of Confirmation…
