Spring is here...

Nazareth House Apostolate, St. Simeon Skete and its mission in Sierra Leone wish you a safe, happy and productive Spring and Summer.  With the longer days, warmer weather, vacations, attention to outdoor gardening and landscaping, students out of school - all the events that Summer brings, don't forget that in the busy-ness of the next few month's activities - we are here praying for all of you. 

We ask that you please remember the work of Nazareth House Apostolate in your prayers and financial support as well. 

The birds are returning to the skete from their Winter Homes.   Today the Rose Breasted Grosbeaks returned.  Here's a video of the adventures of their first day back to the St. Simeon Skete Bird Feeders.  

To the Grosbeaks we say, Keep calm and Eat Seed 

and to the rest of you we say....

St Simeon Skete has abundant wild bird and animal life, you can follow St.Simeon Skete Tweets on Facebook at
