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. 

     With the blessing of His Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion, First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, we are officially announcing the establishment of a new women's monastery, The Iveron Mother of God Monastery, under the jurisdiction of the Eastern American Diocese. The Abbess of our monastery is Nun Elisabeth (Czwikla).

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.

St. Elizabeth Skete is home to a piece of the Belt of the Holy Mother of God, enshrined in an Icon of the feast of Her Protection.
