Father Gregory (Buzi) tonsured at Holy Cross Monastery - 08/27/2020

Father Gregory was tonsured at Holy Cross Monastery in Wayne, WV on Aug 27th.  This is the next important step towards Fr. Gregory becoming a monk.

The photo is immediately following Fr. Gregory’s tonsure.  Flanking Fr. Gregory is the Monastery Abbot, Fr. Seraphim, on right side of the photo , and his confessor, Fr. Macarius on the left side of the photo.

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.
