Aegina

 

 

Aegina - St. NektariosWe travel by ferry to visit the beautiful island of Aegina, well known for its pistachios, and home to the St. Nektarios Monastery. Just canonized in 1961, St. Nektarios is a modern day Saint, still working miracles in the world today as one of the “walking Saints.” Always an emotional experience, we are fortunate enough to visit the tomb of St. Nektarios in the Monastery he began himself, as well as the new church dedicated to him finished in the early 1990's. While we venture off into the island, we have time for lunch and shopping during the day.
