Saint Elizabeth Skete is a womens monastic community under the jurisdiction of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad in the Diocese of Eastern America and New York. The skete was founded by the late Metropolitan Laurus (+ 2008) in 1987.
Every day starts with midnight office in the chapel and ends again with prayer in the chapel, which all the sisters attend.
(From a letter of St. Elizabeth in exile to her monastic sisters, 1918)
