We are using these virtual ‘bricks’ to keep you updated about the Monastery and to ask for your support for our current projects. Please note that you are not ‘buying’ anything; this is a way to donate to the Monastery. If you need a US tax receipt for your donation, please send your support by cheque to American Friends of the Celtic Saints, 3736 W County Rd 4, Berthoud, CO 80513, USA. All donations received are used to support the work of the Monastery.
We are currently (February 2023) actively seeking support following the foundation of our Iona Hermitage. In September 2022, the Monastery made its biggest financial effort to date and successfully acquired Iona Cottage, one of the historical homes on St Columba’s Holy Isle of Iona.
The new Hermitage is dedicated to the Mother of God and All the Saints of Iona, and will be used for permanent monastic residence and for the accommodation of our pilgrims during our summer pilgrimages.
Any support you can offer will be a hugely welcome contribution. The Hermitage is the first Orthodox monastic dwelling on Iona since the end of the first millennium, when St Columba’s Monastery was abandoned because of the Viking invasions.
May God bless you beyond your hopes!
