The recent storms damaged our parking lot. We need to re-pave.

You can make a difference by donating today to the Monastery of the Risen Christ to repair and pave the visitor’s parking lot.
The last storm further eroded the already rutted dirt parking lot, causing additional potholes and washing away gravel. Those who attend services, as well as overnight and day-use guests all rely on the guest parking lot.
The Monastery of the Risen Christ needs your help now, to repair and pave the parking lot to assure continued and safe access for monastery guests.
If we all pitch in, we can get this done. Your participation matters. Go to https://gofund.me/642dd8c9 and donate today.
