Fr Luke Invitation to Munich, Germany
In late December 2015, Abbot Archimandrite Luke attended and presented a talk in Germany on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Monastery of St. Job of Pochaev in Munich, Germany. The seminar began on December 24 and ended on December 26. Various talks were given about the history of the monastery, its historic connection to Pochaev, and the monasteries in Vladimirova, Slovakia and Jordanville, New York. Father Luke’s talk in Russian was titled, “Two Branches: One Root," where he traced the history of those monks that had lived in Germany and then settled in America at Holy Trinity Monastery.
