Monastery Closed Temporarily & St. Panteleimon's Day Cancelled

UPDATE: we are gradually resuming a normal liturgical schedule as the brotherhood recovers from the coronavirus outbreak. The service schedule on our church livestreaming page will be kept continuously up-to-date as the services are reintroduced.

As of Thursday, August 12, Archimandrite Seraphim, Fr. Benedict, and Fr. Damascene have all been released from the hospital and are recovering at home. Altogether 20 of our 26 community members have fallen ill with the coronavirus, but thanks be to God and to St. Panteleimon everyone is either stable or recovering.

Please note that due to this outbreak of the virus, Fr. Seraphim has decided to close the monastery to visitors through the end of August.

Because we are very shorthanded, orders are being fulfilled more slowly than normal. Please allow us at least a few additional days to get your orders shipped.

Thank you for your understanding, and please keep us in your prayers during this time.

I pray that God will continue to keep and bless the Brotherhood, and grant those who are ill, a speedy recovery. You will all be in my daily prayers. May God so grant the monastery continued peace, joy and growth.

We regret to report that construction on the new church has been brought to a halt. In mid-July, we discovered that our general contractor had not been paying his subcontractors. After attempts to resolve the issues in good faith failed, we reluctantly decided to terminate the contract. We have retained legal counsel and are currently in the process of identifying and paying all debts owed to subcontractors and suppliers. This is a necessary step to move forward. We are also searching for a new general contractor to take over the job.
