Brother Gregory (Buzi) to be tonsured at Holy Cross Monastery - 08/16/2020

St. George was recently informed that Brother Gregory will be tonsured at Holy Cross Monastery in Wayne, WV, thus taking the next important step towards becoming a monk.

He will be tonsured after the Vigil (around 9:30 or 10:00PM) for the Feast of Dormition on August 27th. (Note: Holy Cross Monastery follows the Julian calendar for determining Feasts which is 13 days behind the Gregorian calendar, which St. George and the OCA follow).

A tonsure is the cutting of the hair on the head. All Orthodox Christians are tonsured at our baptism – a sign of our being dedicated to God. This monastic tonsure is a confirmation of that pledge.

 

The entire service will be live-streamed can be viewed on the monastery’s Facebook orYouTube sites:
