Monastery Slava


 The Monastery of the Meeting of the Lord located in the rocky hills of North County San Diego, in Escondido, is not a monastery in the full sense of the word. But its tranquil and remote setting, tucked between hills on every side one turns and its rugged terrain is definitely fitting for an ascetic. Though it’s literally 10 minutes from Escondido, a city of 100,000 in population, one would never guess that civilization is just around the corner. 

We were there today for the monastery Slava with His Grace Bishop Maxim leading the clergy and faithful in the eucharistic celebration.
