Orthodox Antactica

Did you know there are two Orthodox chapels in Antarctica ?

Trinity Chapel is served by some of the monks from the Trinity Lavra of St Sergius, just outside Moscow. The chapel is lovely, fully appointed and has celebrated baptisms and a wedding !
Lots more info and pictures here.

The other little chapel of St John of Rila is mentioned here.....

Enjoy !

That is really neat.

I love the Bulgarians who are in my church and we have two icons of St. John of Rila in our church...

Did you know that St. John of Kronstadt was named after St. John of Rila?
