Full HRM Schedule of Retreats 2012 – 2013. Come share a day, a weekend, or just a warm meal with us!
On Friday, April 5 (Bright Friday according to the Gregorian Calendar) Abbot Nicholas served the Divine Liturgy in the main chapel at the University of St. Mary on the Lake, Mundelein, Illinois. The occasion marked the opening of the annual conference of the Institute on Religious Life (IRL). The Liturgy was served in the presence of His Excellency Bishop Blair of Toledo, OH and a number of concelebrants, including Fr. Maximos, Fr. Tom Loya and Fr. Stephen Muth. The choir of Holy Anunciation Byzantine Catholic Church, Homer Glen, IL led the singing.
To book one of these retreats, please contact St. Andrew’s Abbey here.
Fr. Moses will give a hands-on cooking workshop in the week of Monday October 14 through Friday October 18, “Feasting and Fasting.”
Food has deeply spiritual significance. Preparing and tasting foods for the various seasons of the Church calendar will help us experience God’s gifts in a new way.
Room, board, and tuition: $400 single, $350 shared.
Fr. Maximos will repeat his “Nature Made New” retreat on St. Gregory Nazianzen next December 27-29 at St. Andrew’s.
A few years ago Hieromonk Maximos wrote this devotional service in preparation for the Lord’s Nativity. It is designed as an extended reflection on the sacred scriptures in which the coming of the Messiah is foretold. We offer it for those who wish to pray it privately.
On October 8 a group of over 60 priests, deacons and parish administrators spent part of their annual meeting here at our monastery. Fr. Moses prepared a meal for the large group, which other members of the community served. After this Abbot Nicholas spoke to the group in our chapel about the history and ministry of the monastery and our place in the religious heritage of St. Nazianz.
The last weekend of September was very busy at Holy Resurrection Monastery. To begin with, there was a small, but very eager, group who joined Fr. Moses for his retreat/workshop “Feasting and Fasting in the Eastern Churches.” The monastic community and their other guests certainly enjoyed the work of the hands of this dedicated band of culinary toilers! More here.

A rainy evening couldn’t dampen the spirits of the large group of people who gathered at the Monastery to enjoy a concert by about 30 members of the Clipper City Chordsmen on Tuesday July 2. Fr. Moses and his helpers prepared a BBQ meal for over 100 people, who went across the road to St. Gregory’s Parish where the concert was held on account of the weather. The audience was treated to a variety of old favorites, including some beautiful patriotic songs.
At the invitation of our friend, Jim Hyde, Abbot Nicholas made a return appearance as a speaker at the Fox Valley Bible Study that meets regularly (at 6:30 AM!!!) at St. Bernadette’s Parish in Appleton.
