Image Galleries

Here in this section will be hosted galleries of the photographs created during the North American Thebaid Pilgrimage.

North American Thebaid Photographic Pilgrimage
All-Merciful Saviour Monastery, Vashon Island WA

Be assured that the first to benefit from these photographs are the monasteries themselves, as I am providing them with image files for their use on their websites, Facebook pages, and for other purposes. Truly, this is as it should be, that the monasteries should receive the “first fruits” of this endeavor.

As you view these images, we hope you will be inspired to visit the monasteries, and to make regular pilgrimages a part of your Christian life. We also ask that you consider helping to support the Thebaid Project with your contributions and prayers.

Parish Visits

One of the ongoing methods of fundraising for the Thebaid Project is what I call “creative tent-making,” after the example of the Apostle Paul in Acts 18:1-3. In addition to giving a presentation on Orthodox Monasticism and the Thebaid Project, typically with a collection taken to help support the travel and photography, I can also offer my photographic services to parishes. This might include documenting new iconography, a building project, photographing liturgical services and the faithful, with the resulting images enhancing the parish website, and used in other ways.
