UPDATED: All Visits Now Discouraged in Response to the Coronavirus

In light of recent health concerns over the outbreak of COVID-19, the monastery is adopting certain safety measures to help prevent the spread of the virus in our community, most importantly the following:

  • Under the guidance of our ruling bishop, effectively immediately we are discouraging anyone from visiting the monastery until the crisis is over.
  • Monastics will not travel either locally or long-distance without great need.
  • We will be continuing our monastic services unabated, including our daily moleben to St. Panteleimon for the sick and the suffering.

For spiritual guidance on this issue, we recommend reading these very wise statements from our ROCOR hierarchs:

As with all of our health needs, we trust in the powerful intercession of our patron, St. Panteleimon. May he be a strong help for all of us in this trying time. O holy Great-martyr and Healer Panteleimon, pray to God for us!

God bless you Paul! Unfortunately the services are complicated to put together, and there is not one place where everything is already arranged according to our usage.

Bless! Say, is there a link to download the liturgical music and texts by which to sing along during the services? Suggestions?

Thank you; God bless you always!
