The Nativity of the Theotokos Greek Orthodox Monastery is in Crisis!

The first Greek Orthodox women's monastery in America is in desperate need of your help! The health and well-being of 15 nuns is jeopardized by the sick building they are living in. After 23 years, faulty construction reveals mold, rotting wood, and moisture throughout the entire structure rendering the facility unlivable. Their home, the Church they worship in, the place they welcome pilgrims, has become hazardous.  

The mold that permeates the building has infiltrated the HVAC system severely impacting the sisters' health over the years. The entire system needs to be replaced along with the rotted wood throughout.

    

Despite the sisters' attempts to get the insurance to cover even a portion of these damages, none of it will be covered!

Let's not leave them homeless. Please help this wonderful community that in turn helps so many others reach their goal of $315,000!

"In this difficult period Elder Ephraim had so much grace that he exuded a sweet fragrance. Everything the elder touched began to sweetly smell. When he confessed children, covering their heads with his epitrachelion, their hair had this fragrance for a few days. If he touched napkins they began to emit this fragrance. His clothes and skufias emitted the fragrance. The stronger were the temptations, the stronger this fragrance was felt."

Restoring churches is one area where Russians have seized the volunteer spirit. Both churches in Tarusa have been restored with a mixture of state, church and private resources. A local businessman funded the lavish restoration of a church in another village, Istomino, the parish of Leo Tolstoy’s great-grandfather.

In the autumn of 1974, an international conference was convened in Rome, Italy, to formulate a program aimed at alleviating world hunger. The members of SOYO, compelled by their love of God and His Creation, met in Wichita, Kansas the following winter, and unanimously adopted a program which would afford every individual in our Archdiocese an opportunity to personally help bring food to their hungry brothers and sisters throughout the world.
