Essex, Monastery of St. John the Baptist

I have set up this fundraising page for the Monastery of Saint John the Baptist located in Essex (United Kingdom). The founder of the Monastery - Holy Father Sophrony (Feast Day - 11th of July), spiritual child of Saint Silouan the Athonite.

Everyone, who has ever visited the Monastery, knows that Community never asked for any financial contribution: not towards the meals cooked with love and prayer, shared with everyone who comes without exception (very often, hundreds of visitors a week), not for accommodation, where many of us found much needed rest, joy and peace.

I truly believe the Community needs our support during these difficult pandemic times. We will never be able to return as much care, love and joy as we received from the Community.. Let us at least come together to offer our financial support to the Monastery during these challenging times.

Please, note, this page is NOT set up on behalf of the Monastery. It is my own private initiative. The Community is not aware of this fundraising page.
