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: 

It's done! We are officially new owners of the red house next door to the monastery as of December 31, 2021!

We thank God and each one of you who helped to effect this miracle and are humbled by the goodness of God and the generosity of you, our friends.

We are now rolling up our sleeves to work on the necessary renovations, additions, and fix-it jobs that come with this new house.  

We are also pleased to announce that the dogs, chickens, birds and cat that came with the property are thriving under their new care-givers.

As there are ongoing expenses associated with the renovations, maintenance and upkeep of this property, you may wish to continue to contributing to the monastery's building fund.

Again, 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!
