As of Monday, July 26 one member of the brotherhood has tested positive for COVID-19 and a good number of others have fallen ill. Therefore Fr. Seraphim has decided to close the monastery to visitors temporarily, and unfortunately we will have to cancel the public celebration of St. Panteleimon's Day on August 8/9.
Because we are very shorthanded, we will also be closing the store through the end of this week. Orders can continue to be placed either online or via phone message, and will be fulfilled as quickly as possible beginning Tuesday, August 3.
Regarding live-streaming, please make note of the abbreviated liturgical schedule for this week.
Thank you for your understanding, and please keep us in your prayers during this time.
