The Monastery is fully O P E N and functioning!
We are not closed and have not ever closed!
All Orthodox Christians are welcome, regardless of jurisdiction!
I am asking a special favor from as many as possible who would be generous and willing to help.
Last week I received a personal phone call from the Patriarch of Jerusalem and this evening from the Archbishop asking for help during this pandemic. The Holy Land has been hit very hard and the border shut . No tourist, no pilgrims therefore absolutely no funds... for past six months.
If you are able please help!
PLEASE ! PLEASE! PLEASE!
Make checks payable to St Sabbas (memo-Jerusalem help fund). You can also use PayPal via our website.
Please help me raise $10,000 in charitable funds for our beloved Mother Church of Christianity and help disperse the dark cloud hanging over the Holy City. A few of the high ranking archbishops and many of the monastics are suffering terribly from Covid 19. They are elderly and they need our help.
Friday 8:00 am LITURGY
Friday 6:00 pm PARAKLASIS

Pascha afternoon I laid down for a bit of a rest and when I woke up I found this wonderful Pascha surprise on my telephone. I wish to share it with all of you. It was a greeting from His Beatitude the Holy Patriarch Of Jerusalem. Sharing the joy of the Pascha light and acknowledging our hard work and struggle to keep the monastery open for the people and the light of Christ to shine brightly through the Holy Sacraments!
Christ is risen!
