Giving Tuesday: Your donation can be matched!

Our matching donor for the Bridegroom’s Banquet, which took place on Nov. 10, has offered to continue to match donations after the event, until the end of the year, up to the $100,000 goal for the event. Some donations have already come in after the event, so this means that $3,108 in donations and pledges can still be matched! Please mark “Bridegroom’s Banquet” on your donation to include it in the matching funds opportunity. Donations beyond this amount are also very welcomed, and will help with...

Where will the donations go?
Donations will go towards the general operation and maintenance of the monastery for our daily life of prayer and hospitality, and also towards the renovations and repair of our chapel. Our chapel has been in need of repair for a while, and now that the poustinia project is just about finished, it’s finally time to get started! Elements of the project include: waterproofing and mold-removal in the basement, new siding and roof, new gutters and downspouts, new bathroom, and new lighting. Enjoy the slideshow below to see the "before & after" photos from our recent poustinia project, as well as photos of chapel problems that we hope to repair and renovate with your help. Thank you for your support of our monastery and for your help in making a safer and more beautiful place to praise God!

  1. Terrific video. Can you tell me where you have purchased your Christ the Bridegroom icons? It's the loveliest I've ever seen.

    1. Sorry for the delay in our response! The icon was painted for our monastery! We have 8.5 x 11 prints of it (on cardstock, which can be framed in a document frame) that you can purchase if you are interested. Email us at if you would like more information.
