Saint John of San Francisco Orthodox Monastery Feast Day 2023 Gallery

By the mercy of God and through the prayers of our Holy Patron Saint John, we were deemed worthy to celebrate the feast day of the Sacred Monastery. A great number of pilgrims gathered, numbering over 400, to honor Saint John’s memory. On the day of the feast, hundreds of pilgrims celebrated the Divine Liturgy, followed by a festive procession around the monastery grounds, during which the new cemetery and construction site of the new monastic cloister was blessed with Holy Water. A festive trapeza followed. Glory be to God for all things!
