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.
