A guide for praying at home during this Holy Week & Pascha!

Holy Week and Pascha (Easter) without being able to go to church??? Nuns to the rescue. Our monastery is just a little family, not so unlike yours, living the life of the Church in an intense way. We are here to help give Byzantine families/couples ideas and resources for Holy Week and Pascha for your domestic church (the church of your home), because the Resurrection isn’t cancelled! We need to remember now more than ever the hope we have in Christ’s destruction of death and His gift of eternal life. This current crisis is an opportunity to revive our domestic churches and begin to pray (or pray more) as a family/couple and individually. And, when we pray, we must remember that the whole Body of Christ—the Church, is with us.

We are excited to share with you this project we've been working on for the past week! Please share it quickly with others, in time for Holy Week to begin! God bless you!


  1. Chistos Voskrese! to all who are celebrating with us in this time of our spiritual need. May God bless us with His Grace and Spiritual Love for us.

  2. Thank you Mother Theodora and all of you at CTBM! Christ is Risen! (well... almost)

    P.S.: I'm still trying to figure out how to make way for the Lord. ;-) Come visit when you can.

  3. What an amazing blessing!!! I cannot tell you how much my whole family appreciates all the hard work you put into this! We are taking it all in and using it all. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! Sending many prayers of thanksgiving to God for this gift. May you all be blessed abundantly.
