The Orthodox Monastery of the Transfiguration

Dear Friends,

We have to close our monastery to all visitors for the time being. Two of the sisters have tested positive for covid. They are resting and isolating, but other sisters may have been exposed.

Our St Nicholas Day services, and the remainder of the services this week, will be cancelled or celebrated quietly by the sisterhood alone. Services will not be streamed, as we must social distance and avoid choral singing.

Thank you for your understanding and your prayers.

Mother Christophora

Christ is in our midst!

It is good to phone or email us in advance with your request to attend services.
