Lightning struck at the monastery and caused the main building to catch fire on Thursday, June 15th. As a result, the sisters temporarily have no place to sleep. They are in need of mobile homes to be set up on the property until their building can be repaired.
While insurance should cover the cost of the damages, it won't cover the cost of the temporary housing they need, and housing all of the sisters will be a large expense. As all of us in the area know, the sisters are our family. Please contribute what you can in their time of need.
If you'd like to donate directly to the monastery, you may do so by sending a check to:

"When My Baba Died and When My Yiayia Died are welcome resources for Orthodox caregivers facing the difficult task of tenderly guiding their children through the mourning process.
The author, Marjorie Kunch, writes gently and straightforwardly about what to expect at an Orthodox funeral service and the array of emotions attached to grief. Kids and adults alike will greatly benefit from these unique tools for teaching Orthodox of all ages about the Church's hope-filled response to death and eternity."
-Molly Sabourin, author of Close to Home: One Orthodox Mother's Quest for Patience, Peace and Perseverance.
