The St George Seniors Group made their annual spring pilgrimage to St Paraskevi Monastery yesterday. I’ve been blessed to join them on the past two trips; yesterday we were also joined by Fr John Salem.
(Click pics to enlarge.)
Shot from a distance, here’s a pic of the newly completed Temple dedicated to Saint Paraskevi.
Aha! The secondary reason for the annual trip … the Texas Bluebonnets.
One of the woodcarvings portraying a scence from St Paraskevi’s life, found on the doors leading from the narthex into the nave.
Fr John Salem says: “I want one of those on our church property!”
(Nah … I think he was referring to a bell tower.)
