Fragrance of the Desert, Pt. 4 – St. Anthony’s Greek Orthodox Monastery, Florence AZ

New Photo Gallery posted, with unique images made at St Anthony’s in the Arizona Desert.

North American Thebaid Photographic Pilgrimage

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am very thankful to God’s providence for opening the doors for me to stay at St Anthony’s Greek Orthodox Monastery for a few days, even though I had been unable to reach the monks to formally schedule a visit. They had room for me, and were most kind and hospitable, and Abbot Paisios gave his blessing for me to make some photographs during my stay.

This is a thriving and bustling monastery, with both men and women pilgrims. I saw whole families there, as well as a youth group, and met people from all across the US and Canada, and even from Australia.

Proceed to this special Gallery page to view the new photos, and watch for more galleries to be posted soon, as I continue my Western pilgrimage.

As a reminder, if you haven’t yet pre-ordered the North American Thebaid coffee table book (due later this Autumn), please consider doing so, as book pre-orders are our primary fundraising means to support the travel and photography.  Additional rewards are provided to supporters at a variety of levels. Thank you!
