Saint Elizabeth Skete is a women's 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.
By the mercy of God, this monastery is dedicated to all of the wonderworking Iveron Mother of God Icons, with a special emphasis on the Miracle of the Myrrh-Streaming Iveron Montreal icon of the Mother of God, and to Her faithful Guardian, Brother José Muñoz-Cortez who was brutally tortured and martyred in Athens on October 31, 1997.
