Blessed Xenia of St. Petersburg was married early in life to a colonel, but his sudden and unexpected death left her widowed at the young age of 26. Realizing in her grief the transitory nature of this life, she gave away all her earthly possessions and became a "fool-for-Christ", wearing the uniform of her departed husband, and called herself by his name. She spent the remainder of her life among the paupers of St. Petersburg, enduring mockery and the harsh elements, praying always to God in her heart.
St. Xenia was given the gift of miracle-working in abundance, both during her lifetime and after her repose. Today she is known particularly for her intercessions for those seeking employment, and for families and marriages.

Due to the severe ice storms of February 11th & 15th, the monastery has been without power, phones and internet for a prolonged period of time. This will likely continue for the indefinite future due to the severe damage from the storm throughout the entire region.
We are working to fulfill orders placed via our online store as quickly as we are able, however the process is very slow since we need to drive hours to town to download the orders, return to the monastery to print them off and package them, and then drive back into town to ship them since no mail or shipping services are able to reach us. We appreciate everyone's patience as we are doing our best to run our business during these circumstances.
Please pray for us!
