Pictures from our trip to Aegina, Greece...





We went to Greece 2 1/2 years ago. One of our stops was to Aegina where St. Nektarios began a women's monastery and where there is a beautiful church dedicated to him AND where his relics are located. Here are some pictures of that trip (in honor of yesterday being the feast day of St. Nektarios). Every time my dad goes to Greece he always makes a stop in Aegina. My parents just returned from Greece and, I think, they were in Aegina this last weekend.

Those photos are absolutely beautiful! I've been enjoying the differing articles about St. Nektarios in blogland!

Are you bilingual?

Christina, those are really good pictures! It looked the same last Saturday when we were there, complete with the blue sky. Its always sunny in Greece:)Dad goes everytime he makes a trip to Greece because of you!! I think AG. Nectarios is a personal friend of his.
He would never admit to that though. You know religion is private to him.

That church is so beautiful!

I love St Nektarios very much. If I had been able to choose my own patron saint I would have been a Nectaria :-)
