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. 


Update on Special Building Fund: 

Many of you have donated to help us with the purchase of the house next door. 

Glory to God! Thanks to all of your kind and generous donations, we have now reached our building fund goal and are in the process of finalizing this purchase in short order.

For photos of this property, please refer to our previous  September 2021 newsletter

As there will be ongoing expenses associated with the renovations, maintenance and upkeep of this property, you may choose to continue to contribute to the monastery's building fund.

We thank each and every one of you from the bottom of our hearts for your faithful support and remember you in our prayers to God!
