Greetings to all with the upcoming feast of Pentecost!
Please keep our Brotherhood in your prayers.
Whether you just want to keep your whiskers out of your soup or whether you are looking for something to hold a style or curl like a vice grip, this is the product.
After much research and testing (on humans, not animals) we have come to the perfect recipe for an easy to apply wax. Your upper-lip upholstery will enjoy a superior, long-lasting hold, excellent styling ability, and conditioning.
Also known as Abyssinian Twirling Wax, our formula contains beeswax for tackiness and malleability, conditioning creaminess of all-natural lanolin (obtained in a cruelty-free manner from sheep’s wool) and pine resin or sap harvested in the forest.
Pine resin and lanolin are the keys to a superior mustache wax, which is why so many products that substitute unnatural Petroleum Jelly or other fats fail to make a product of this caliber.
The pine sap imparts an amazing forest fragrance all on its own, so no additional fragrance, or essential oils are needed (possible irritants for the sensitive face).
Just a quick note to remind everyone that our Christmas Blend coffee is available now!
Also, please note: Orders made with the intent to arrive in time for the 25th of December should be made BEFORE December 9th given continuing supply chain issues and all the shipping companies being overwhelmed with packages.
On the Monastery’s Patronal Feast Day of the All-Merciful Saviour (August 1/14, 2022), the former Riassa-phore Monk Peter was tonsured a stavrophore monk with the name of Paisois in honor of St. Paisios of Mt. Athos, and the worker Basil was clothed as a novice, totaling 6 monastic members of our monastery. Please pray for us all!

This lovely commemorative coin has an icon of Christ “made without hands” inspired by the famous Icon of Christ treasured in the monastery of St. Catherine on Mt. Sinai on it’s front, with the Slavic cross and the shorter version of the Jesus Prayer on it’s back: “Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me.”
This zinc alloy coin measures approximately 2″ wide, weighs around 2 ounces, and makes for a lovely gift. Some have even taken the coin and placed it in their icon corner.
