He who fasts from food, and his heart does not fast from frustration and hatred, and his tongue utters falsehood, so his fast is invalid, because fasting of the tongue is the last of the fasting of the mouth, and towards the heart is the last of the two (St Isaac the Syrian)
Great lent fast

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.
