On June 15, 2008  the Monastery solemnly celebrated the feast of Pentecost with Metropolitan Hilarion. At the end of the Vespers Service, the newly elected abbot of Holy Trinity Monastery, Archimandrite Luke,  was given the abbot’s staff as a symbol of his new role as a pastor and shepherd of the brotherhood entrusted to him. His Eminence expressed his warm wishes and expressed his heartfelt prayers that the Holy Spirit grant him enlightenment, strength and wisdom to carry out his duties. After the common meal a reception was held at the skete of the late Metropolitan Laurus for all present.
