Friends of the Monastery

This group of benefactors has been a major source of support for the monastery since its inception in 1995.  The Friends commit themselves to pray regularly for the building up of the monastery as well as to contribute financially and/or from their resources of time and energy.  They are welcomed at the monastery on the last Sunday of each month for a presentation on some topic of Orthodox interest, for Vespers, and for a potluck supper.  During the past year, members of the Friends helped with maintaining the monastery grounds and buildings, repairing the monastery’s computers, by providing  professional expertise to review contracts and loans, and other good deeds too numerous to mention.
