“Another monastery to be a cradle and beacon of Orthodoxy in this far corner of the earth. A monastery that will house the new nuns of the Holy Metropolis. A monastery that will provide food and help to our poor and suffering brothers and sisters. A monastery that will become a warm nest for orphans, and abandoned and poor children,” reads the announcement.
