Liturgy & Events Schedule

At the recommendation of the bishop (because of the immune-system deficiencies of some of the nuns), the monastery, chapel and poustinias will be closed to guests until further notice. We are very sorry for this difficulty. Please know that we are united with you in prayer, and we are praying for you and your loved ones.

Boys & Girls Camps
Sadly, we need to let you know that the Eparchy of Parma Boys and Girls Camps for the summer of 2020 have been canceled due to the pandemic. An online talk and discussion for teen girls may be scheduled for later in the summer. Check back here or visit for updates. Our hearts go out to all of the teens who had hoped to participate. We love you and we're praying for you! God is with you!
