Hello.


Could you please proofread my translation?


We start our tour by visiting the Church of St. Paul in Thessaloniki where the relics of the saint are contained. Later we will visit John the Baptist's cell and a nearby cave in which many saits including the founder of Hesychasm Gregory Palamas lead a life dedicated to God. The monastery has a collection of the holy relics, among which there is John the Baptist's right hand. The visit to the church, where the relics of saint Antonious the patron saint of Veria are held, will introduce you to the city of Veria. Saint Paul's tribune, the place where his passionate speech converted to christianity hundreds of people, will move the piligrims back to early Chistian period. Panagia Soumela Monastery in the town of Kastania houses the oldest icon of the Virgin Mary painted by the hand of St. Luke the Evangelist. The icon still produces miracles. We will also visit men's monastery of the Assumption of the Virgin, Panagia Dovra Church of the XII century, which houses the miraculous icon of Panagia Dovra, Relics of St. Demetrius and of Archbishop Luca. Visiting religious sites requires a specific dress code. Men must wear long trousers. Their shoulders must be covered. Women must wear below knee skirts with covered low-cut top and shoulders. It's not mandatory for them to cover their heads. The excursion is offered only in summer.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

No, it should be led. I googled whether it should be man's monastery or men's monastery and came across an article which used ''men's monastery'' so I thought it was correct. Should I rephrase all the parts in yellow?

For contained: From early Church history and custom, the Mass was celebrated on the tombs of martyrs, either in the Catacombs, or on altars that contained relics of martyrs. St. Mary’s church has two reliquaries and an altar stone in a special box in the center of the altar.

Yes

Monica 23whether it should be man's monastery or men's monastery

Monastery by itself is fine.

Monasteries are places where monks (males) live. Although the word "monastery" is sometimes used for a place where nuns (females) live, nuns usually live in a convent or nunnery.

Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.

I see. Thank you!
