​Our Mission is Sharing the Love of God

Through Music as we work and pray with our aim

of acquiring the Gift of​ the Holy Spirit.


New Tikhvin Skete of the Holy Mother of God

is blessed by Metropolitan Hilarion of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. also known as ROCOR.  


Mother Elizabeth is the director in residence with the monastic rank of the Little Schema  NUN also known as Cross-Bearer or Stavrophore.


As all Orthodox Christian Monastics, we pray for the world and our salvation.  This is what we are centered to do everyday and hold prayers in our New Tikhvin Skete of the Holy Mother of God and attend Divine Services mostly in the parish 25 miles away that has them with the greatest frequency.  These prayer services are led by an experienced chaplain of the Orthodox Christian Faith of 20 plus years. The sermons are in English and the Liturgical Services are understandable for an American English speaker even when other languages color  the various prayer services.  


Whether we pray in front of our ikons or behind the wheel of the car, we are called to pray and talk with God.  It is our tradition to make this prayer often chanted and in a songs in the tradition from which we have grown and been formed over the years and in ways we continue to learn and share.


We invite you to pray for us, with us, and for you to communicate specific prayer requests you may have at any given time.  Our work is to grow in communion with God as we reach out to our loving  and compassionate Father and Saviour Jesus Christ and learn from the daily encounters that God teaches us through you and the work of the Holy Spirit.


Welcome to all in Christ's name,


Mother Elizabeth
