Patron Saint's Day: July 18
The upper church in honour of St Elisabeth, the heavenly patroness of the Convent, was consecrated on January 2, 2005. Its interior design is well-crafted and rounded-up. The church has a five-tier iconostasis in the classical Russian style. All icons in this church were painted by the Convent’s icon painters in accordance with the Russian and Byzantine samples of the 12th-15th centuries, when church art was at its peak. Full cycle of worship is held in the upper and the lower churches daily, and the Psalter is read incessantly.
On the feast day of our patron saint, the Holy Martyr Grand Duchess Elisabeth Romanov, we inaugurated a new church bell acquired at the initiative of the parents of our Sunday School students.
