Honey Spas at Our Convent

Procession of the Honorable Wood of the Life-Giving Cross of the Lord feast (Honey Spas) at our convent.

Orthodox Christians celebrate three Savior Days in August: Honey Spas, Apple Spas, and Nut Spas. The dates of the holidays remain unchanged from year to year. According to the ancient customs, water, honey and poppy are blessed on this day.
