Current Project

By the grace of God, the Abbey is celebrating it's 10th anniversary this August and we will be installing a new iconostasis and beautiful woodwork in the St Moses church. We need your prayers.

Sayings of the Desert Fathers


الحق إسم من أسمــاء اللــه، الذى
يُحب الحـق، يُحــب اللــــه
والذى يَبعد عن الحق يَبعد عن اللـه قداسة البابا شنوده الثالث

Truth is one of God's names. He who loves truth, loves God and he who strays away from truth, strays away from God.

-H.H. Pope Shenouda III
