Fr Nektariy gave his all to his monastery. The burden nearly killed him. But then you stepped in.
We wrote to you recently about the desperate situation of Fr Nektariy and the Holy Trinity Monastery in Mexico City. Fr Nektariy is sick and on the brink of a physical collapse, and the brethren were forced to make the heartbreaking decision to close the monastery’s doors forever.
Fortunately for them, for all the parishioners of the monastery, and for our Church, you did not let this happen. The response has been overwhelming and we are so incredibly grateful! We now have enough to keep the monastery open for a year!
Here’s what your help will allow Fr Nektariy to do:
- Keep the parish open;
- Have time to minister better to our communities;
- Reopen the monastery bakery shop, which used to bring 60 % of the monastery income, thus making the monastery self-sufficient!
- Invest in the monastery apiary, which is almost lost. This will allow the brethren to sell honey and make their own beeswax candles.
Thank you for saving the only ROCOR parish and monastery in Mexico!
