You can now enjoy 30% off all our items at our Online Christmas Market where you can purchase Christmas presents and souvenirs made with love and continuous prayer. In Belarus, we celebrate Christmas on January 7, and there's still plenty of time for you to buy Christmas presents. All sales support the Sisters' ministries that look after children and women in the rehabilitation centers.
With each purchase of our beautiful Christmas gifts, you help us support our ministries that serve the poor, sick, homeless, and lonely people. Every item purchased at the Online Market is a donation towards one of the Convent’s ministries.
The Online Christmas Market of St. Elisabeth Convent offers a range of unique handmade items that will make memorable Christmas gifts, including:
Additionally, you can become a Secret Angel by purchasing products from a special category that will be sent to children with special needs who live permanently in boarding homes which our Sisters look after every day. Your Secret Angel gift will help to buy toys, books and colouring books, materials for creativity, and sweets.
Also, this year, you can help women who find shelter in one of our Convent’s rehabilitation centers. We keep our doors open to many women who are looking for a safe place to stay.
We do want to let you know that, throughout the pandemic and shutdowns, we were able to continue running and supporting our multiple social ministries that care for the vulnerable and sick nearby our monastery. Our biggest inspiration has been Saint Elisabeth who helped the sick and the needy during her lifetime.
On January 19th, the Orthodox Church celebrates the joyous Feast of Theophany. In Christian tradition, the feast of Theophany commemorates the baptism of Jesus Christ by Saint John the Baptist and the manifestation of Christ as God.
We are happy to bring you the good news that as of today, half of our monastic sisters who became infected with COVID have fully recovered. Thirty sisters are still ill, most are having mild symptoms or are asymptomatic.
