On the 29th day of Pachons (June 6th), the Church celebrates one of the 7 major feasts of the Lord, the Holy feast of the Pentecost where the Spirit descended on the disciples as tongues of Fire. The Holy Spirit was powerful in the past and it still is, even during this Pandemic, may we allow the Spirit to be as a fire within us, remembering its power, making the disciples speak in languages they did not know in order to preach to the whole world!
Regarding to COVID-19, the
Convent is still not receiving visitors or retreats until further notice.
Divine Liturgy will be for nuns only
Our faith is based on the teachings of the Bible and the heritage of the patron fathers. We believe in the Nicaean creed and practice the sacraments of the Coptic Orthodox Church. In submission and love to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ we pray to lead others to HIM.
This magnificent place is home for nuns, consecrated sisters, novices and sister under training. We welcome our guests including families for congregational worship and females for spiritual retreats. Part of our spiritual journey is achieved by personal devotion as well as liturgical and ecclesiastical worship. We also labor to be productive by manual work in sewing, embroidery, painting icons etc.. In the convent you will enjoy and learn to live in-part the monastic life of worship, service and obedience and self-denial.
