We just received this from the Chancery. Please pray for the nuns and grounds of the St. John Monastery in Goldendale, WA.
The Metropolis has just been informed by Father Timothy Pavlatos that a forest fire out of control and very close to the St. John Monastery in Goldendale. The Sisters have all be evacuated from the premises. It seems to be very close to the new building and the firefighters are desperately trying to put the fire out.
His Eminence has requested all our faithful for their prayers that our Lord place his mighty hand and save our Monastery and the homes of all the citizens of that area.
In Christ truly,
