Holy Myrrhbearers Monastery

On Saturday we met Father Aaron at the Holy Myrhhbearers Monastery in Otego.  This order of American Orthodox Christians lives a monastic life while raising various breeds of sheep and Saanen goats.  We worshipped at the noon service then enjoyed a delicious vegetarian lunch with Sister Deborah and a visitor who was staying at the monastery on retreat.
