Troparion Tone 4 “Quick to Hear”

Let us make haste to the Theotokos amid our misfortunes,
And fall down now before her holy icon,
Crying out with faith from the depths of our soul,
Hearken quickly to our entreaty, O Virgin,
In that thou art called “She Who Is Quick to Hear”
For thee do we thy servants,
Have as a ready helper in our needs,

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit

Both now and ever and unto ages of ages, Amen

Kontakion Tone 8

Tempest-tossed on the sea of life, we sink beneath the threefold waves
of the passions and temptations,
Wherefore, grant us a helping hand, O Lady, as thy Son did to Peter,
And haste thou to deliver us from misfortunes, that we may cry out to thee:
                                                        Rejoice, O Most Good One, who art Quick to Hear!


Fund Raising for Car Port and Garden Shed

Once more we reach out to you asking for your support.  When we moved into our picturesque location there was a very large two level garage.  The garage was converted into work space and kelias for three sisters  and a guest room, but we lost all our storage space.  We now need to build a shelter for our car, snow blower, lawn mower, equipment and large tools which up until now spend the winter open to the weather.  We also need to build a garden shed to hold all the garden equipment.  Using the raised bed method and organic practices our vegetable garden provides berries and vegetables for our trapeza table.

Please help us raise $15,500 to build a carport and garden shed which will fit a car and the various tools and equipment.

Please make a donation on our website using the DONATE button above,  or send a check payable to Convent Quick to Hear.
