Our Monastery – November/December 2021

Pavilion. As we announced at the monastery’s patronal feast, continuing a thought of His Eminence Nicolae, we intend to build a summer altar/pavilion which will allow us to organize feasts and other activities in better conditions. We are thinking of a wooden structure of about 30 x 70 feet. Right now we are at the stage of architectural sketching. Those who can and want to help build the pavilion can do so by contacting us directly. Mr Adrian Pala, a member of the board of our monastery, has already started raising funds for the purchase of lumber.

Deisis Icons. With God’s help, we comissioned the painting of five Deisis icons from holy Putna Monastery: of the Savior, the Mother of God, St John the Baptist, St Basil the Great, and St Demetrius the New. The icons will adorn the refectory and the summer altar during services.

We are happy to announce the completion of the first icon. Many thanks to the donors, Bogdan and Andreea. May God reward their love!

Icons. With the blessing of His Eminence Nicolae, printed icons are mounted to wood in our monastery.

Pure beeswax candles. Pure bees-wax 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.
