Thank you for your prayers for the St. Herman Monastery (and for Northern California in general). Things seem to be getting better. Here is an update from Bishop BASIL:
"A message from Fr. Damascene of the St. Herman Monastery to His Grace Bishop Maxim: Fr. Damascene informed His Grace that he called Platina this morning and was told that the fire is not spreading in the direction of the Monastery. Fr. Damascene and Monk Paisius have left to Platina to talk with firefighters and forest rangers. The other monks will remain in Redding until further notice."
God be praised!
