On Saturday, December 7, 2013, members of the Antiochian Women of St. Paul’s visited St. Thekla Convent in Glenville, Pennsylvania, accompanied by St. Paul’s pastor Fr. Andrew. During the visit, the ladies received a tour of the monastery and saw the new censer stand that had been donated by the Antiochian Women for the chapel and had just been delivered. The ladies also brought with them groceries donated by Soumaya and Sons Bakery, as well as incense from the parish.
Mother Eisodia and Sister Kathrina showed true Christian hospitality during the visit, offering a shared meal and also explaining about the plans that have been made for the convent’s development.
