02Around 6:00 AM on Sunday morning, on the feast of Holy Pentecost, a fire burned down the building housing the Convent of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary and candle factory at Holy Cross Monastery in Wayne, WV. By the grace of God, the fire caused the monastics no serious, life-threatening injuries. More information will be published as it becomes available. Please pray for Mother Theodora, who is left with no cell and only the clothes on her back. It is not yet clear what started the fire, but in the words of Mother Theodora, “God has allowed this so that we will repent for our sins.”

Those who wish to donate to the monastery to help with the repairs can do so at their website by clicking here.
