Interview with Madre Ivonne

Dear Parish Faithful,

For those who may be interested, here is a pretty extensive interview with Madre Ines of the Hogar San Rafael Ayau Orphanage in Guatemala City, conducted when she was recently in Russia. It was sent to me by Bobbie Royhab, a woman from Toledo who has been on our own mission teams in the past.

Good Afternoon,

Ron and I attended a retreat with Madre Ivonne, coordinator of the Hogar Rafael Ayau Orthodox Christian orphanage in Guatemala, at a Greek Orthodox church and school in Pittsburgh this last weekend.

She gave us an article (link is above) that recently appeared in a Russian publication. It is an interview with Madre Abbess Ines of the Orthodox monastery in Guatemala. Madre Ines, also director of the Hogar, and Madre Maria, the third Orthodox nun who lives in Guatemala, spent several weeks in Russia in July.
