How to help?


The monastery has a secure portal here. Your gift today supports the revitalization of monastic life at Holy Resurrection Monastery. There is now a community and there are various needs: food, clothing, electricity, liturgical supplies, health maintenance, etc. The monastery has been restored (with the exception of a few projects) to make the residence a welcome place for other women who would like to become monastics and to provide for guests. These are partial lists that provide some specifics. If you have questions, time and talents that you would like to offer, please contact the monastery.
