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 recommenced involving works on the courtyrard, drainage, electricity and living quarters. Currently the living quarters, library and dining hall are being rendered, painted and soon the doors will be fitted. We estimate this stage to reach completion by mid 2015.

Due to an increase of fathers at the monastery we will now also have to commence constructing the second wing of living quarters. We provide an image of the proposed wing below.
