three novices

Rassaphore and stavrophore tonsures were conferred on several sisters and brothers living and working with us.

boarding house

On Easter, we were allowed for the first time in the two “Covid” years to visit our old friends, the patients of the National Mental Health Centre and residents of the affiliated boarding homes whom we eagerly support.

We begin to serve weekly liturgies in children's and adult boarding homes, as well as in various educational institutions and rehabilitation centres.

We have expanded our "agricultural area” and planted as many as 7 hectares of potatoes plus many other vegetables to have food for ourselves, the people that we support and of course our guests.

summer camp

As we wrote in one of our previous letters, this year we found a new spectacular place where our parishioners' children and the students of our Orthodox gymnasium can spend summer holidays.
