Make a Donation

We appreciate your donation to the monastery. St. Barbara Orthodox Monastery is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Many often ask how they can help the monastery. One can always help by praying, volunteering time and talents, and patronising the monastery's bookstore and giftshop. One can also make a one-time monetary donation or a monthly recurring donation both to support our monastery's growing community and to our chapel building fund. 

For General Fund Contributions:
