The prayer for the entire world continues. The daily cycle of services in the church continues, but only members of the brotherhood are present at the services.

The peaceful atmosphere of the monastery and close proximity to nature offer the hurried people in the busy world of today a rare opportunity to relax − far from the bustle and noise of everyday life.
