BUILDING PROGRAMS

'Love is that good disposition of the soul in which it prefers nothing that exists to the knowledge of God.'

In 2005 construction of the Pantanassa Monastery Catholicon (main church) commenced. The Catholicon is dedicated to the Holy Mother of God Pantanassa which includes a small chapel dedicated to St John Chrysostom. The foundation stone for the Catholicon was laid on 16 July 2005 by His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos.

Currently the Catholicon has reached lock up stage. This means that the external walls, roof, doors, windows and concrete flooring have been completed, however, inside the church is bare concrete floor and walls.

While, in 2008, construction began on the monk’s living quarters, kitchen, refectory and library and continued until the late 2010 to a partial lock up stage, where it was put on hold for financial reasons. In 2013, the construction program partially recommenced involving works on the courtyrard, drainage and electricity.
