Pilgrims Guide
Welcome to the Holy Protection Monastery of the Theotokos

Kindly read the following rules by virtue of which we may offer hospitality


This is the Holy Monastery of the Holy Protection of the Theotokos. It is a place of repentance and prayer for the nuns and pious pilgrims.
Out of love and respect for the holy grounds, we humbly ask you to be dressed appropriately at all times.


Women are kindly asked to wear skirts below the knee and sleeved shirts (no pants, shorts, mini-skirts, sleeveless blouses, etc.). We politely
ask the men wear long pants and sleeved shirts. If you have come unprepared, we will be glad to provide you with the necessary clothing.


You should remember that the consecration of this holy place does not allow for impropriety or disgraceful behavior. Loud conversation,
insolent chatter, unrestrained laughter and rude gestures are out of place here.


Smoking anywhere within the holy grounds is strictly forbidden.


Children must remain under parental supervision at all times.


Visiting hours are from 9 am – 6 pm, as well as during all daily services.


Visitors are allowed to take photographs only if they have the blessing of the Monastery’s Abbess.


We trust in your good intent that you will adhere to these rules within the precincts of the blessed spiritual garden that is Holy Protection
Greek Orthodox Monastery.


May our Lord Jesus Christ’s All Holy Mother keep you under her protection and through her intercessions may our Lord guide your steps
onto the way of peace.
