Join us for our first fundraising event!

We're excited to invite you to "Mumford & Nuns" BBQ, our first fundraising event, on Saturday, July 11!  Enjoy a BBQ cookout, live music, monastery tours, a silent auction, raffles and more!  “Mumford & Nuns” BBQ is a “play on words” with the name of the popular band “Mumford & Sons” and will take place at the monastery (on Mumford Road!). The event is for adults 21 and older.

We are grateful to a committee of volunteers from Byzantine and Roman Catholic parishes in Northeast Ohio for suggesting and helping with this event. We think this will be a great opportunity for you to visit the monastery, pray with us, enjoy an evening out, have an opportunity to get to know us, and support monastic life during this Year of Consecrated Life.

Visit our BBQ page for more information and to purchase a ticket! Tickets are $60/person or $110/couple. Please purchase your ticket by June 30. We are also in need of table sponsors and event sponsors.

Here is a sneak peak at some of the silent auction items:

  • An icon of Christ the Bridegroom hand-painted in the traditional egg-tempera style by postulant Moki Lonchyna
  • Framed photographs by Fr. Patrick Anderson
  • A dinner cooked for you, and up to six guests, by Mother Theodora
  • Themed gift baskets

We hope you can join us for a great evening!
