We recently traveled to Monk’s Lagoon located on Spruce Island near Kodiak. It’s a sacred place for orthodox Christians around the world. It is the burial site of Saint Herman, the first orthodox saint in North America.
In this web extra, Father Michael Oleksa talks about the history and significance of Saint Herman. Journey to Monk’s Lagoon airs on Frontiers Sunday, August 28 at 4:30 and 10:30 p.m.
