Our Monastery – November 2020

We thank all the right believing Christians who joined us at the celebration of our patron saint, Saint Dumitru the New from Bucharest, and those who supported us with prayer during the forty Holy Liturgies celebrated since October 24.

Holy relics. At the request of His Eminence Nicolae, our monastery received a particle of the holy relics of Saint John Maximovitch the Wonderworker. The holy relics were encased in a reliquary and incorporated into the saint’s icon; they can be venerated in the church of the monastery. Our monastery also has vestments that dressed the holy relics of Saint Demetrius the New from Bucharest, a piece from the epitrachelion of Saint Nectarius of Aegina, and Myrrh from the Iveron Icon of the Mother of God of Hawaii.

Icons. With the blessing of His Eminence Nicolae, printed icons are mounted to wood in our monastery. They can be found on the monastery’s website, at: https://www.sfdumitru.org/index.php/ro/pangar/icoane.

Pure beeswax candles. Pure beeswax candles are also made in our monastery to adorn the prayer of every Christian. A pure wax candle burning during private or church prayer is a sacrifice pleasing to God.
