Hi,

I have been sick for about a year and been to so many doctors/specialists who cannot help me.. I even had to quit my job and do not know what to do next.

I have been praying to Saint Irene Chrysovalatou and using her holy oil. I was just wondering if anyone knows where I can get the holy apple from in Australia???

I know that you can get it in the US and in Greece, but I dont think they can send it to Australia?

Please let me know if anyone has any ideas??

Thanks
Sophie

Hi Sopie,

I sent you a PM.

Just discovered this address and they do send to Australia. :)


If anyone wishes to make a pilgrimage or contact this monastery to make a small donation and request a slice or two of the miraculous apple, subscribe to their periodical, send in prayer requests or a thanksgiving letter, or purchase an icon or holy water or holy oil or a belt/cord or books, the following methods of contact should be taken:

Contact details for the monastery:

Address:
Αγ.Ειρήνης Χρυσοβαλάντου
17 Λυκόβρυση
Αθήναι 14123

or

St. Irene Chrysovalantou
17 Lykovrisi
Athens, Greece 14123

Telephone: there is no phone communication with the monastery.

Thanks for that :)

However I just don't think we are allowed to receive fruit here at it might get held up in customs, I guess it's worth a shot.

Most people in Greece pay through their banks or with wire transfers. I think your safest bet is to try and find their back number and then to do an international wire transfer from your bank. Or, you can wait until you know of someone who is going to Greece, who can bring some cash to the Monastery.

I once wanted to send a small donation to a small monastery in a remote part of Greece, and I had some Euros, so I wrote a little card, tucked the Euro note inside the card (so it wouldn't show through a scanner lest anyone steal it) and put a little icon sticker I had to seal it, and trusted it to the protection of God!

Thanks for your replies :)
I actually emailed the monastery in the USA as I thought it was worth a try and they sent me the apple with no problem.

I might visit the one in Gosford next time I'm in NSW, I live in Melb. Thanks!!

With God help, I will go on a pilgrimage in Greece, for one week, from 19 to 27 May, by car. We are 4 people, among us we have 2 nuns. I would need some help in order to prepare this pilgrimage. First - we would like to go to st Irene monastery, near Athens - does anyone know if it is possible to have accomodation in the monastery for one night? and how to get there?
Also, we would like to attend the service of St John the Russian on his feast day, 27 May; however, my friend from Athens told me that all the hotel rooms are already reserved in that area for 26/27 May ; we may remain in Athens till 27 May and go to Prokopi early in the morning, but we will not have enough time to visit also St David's monastery. If someone knows also an accomodation choice in that area...
And we need your prayers, for we have only one driver ...
Thanks
