In observance of the First Week of Great Lent, the Hermitage offices and gift shop will be closed between Monday, February 23rd and Friday, February 27th. Phone messages may be left and orders may be placed online during this time, but these will not be processed until Monday, March 2nd.
If you plan to visit the monastery for First Week services, please be advised that the local roads are still icy and very treacherous due to continued severe winter weather. We discourage anyone from visiting until the roads clear, especially in a vehicle not equipped with four wheel drive.
Forgive us, and through His grace may God forgive and have mercy on us all.
