    Today, 23 February on the Church’s calendar, we celebrate the memory of the Holy Nazarius (), Abbot of Valaam. The Life of St Nazarius compiled and translated from 19th-c. sources by Fr Seraphim (Rose)—who, providentially, was tonsured on the day of St Nazarius’s repose [1]—describes him as ‘a man of virtue who loved the solitary life of silence in the wilderness.’.   reflections on new valaam (part two) diocesan life Joined by some OCMC campers and their parents, we climbed into two skiffs and sped off to St. Herman’s “New Valaam”—Monk’s Lagoon.

A New Home. In May of , Father Gerasim first visited the site of Father Herman’s Spruce Island hermitage and grave. Father Herman was a priest who cared for Alutiiq people during the early decades of Russian rule on Kodiak, and was cannonized in The visit to the heritage changed Father Gerasim's life. The sun shone brightly.
