St Catharines Monastery

St Catharines Monastery Closed

Oct. 4, 2013

by Joel Elowsky

The St. Catharines Monastery was shut down last month due to the inability to meet expenses because of the strife and tension in Egypt. This has affected not only the monastery but also the town which relies on such income. The hardships for the monastery and the townspeople is palpable as many of the businesses in the area were heavily dependent on tourism.
