Project takes place in Novodevichy Convent, which is situated in Saint-Petersburg.
Volunteers will help with renovation works in the monastery school for kids.
Volunteers will stay in a dormitory in the area of Novodevichy Convent. Monastery provides beds with blankets, pillows etc. Monastery provides ordinary (with meat) or vegetarian food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served in a monastery canteen.
Participants will be able to see the inner life of the Orthodox monastery. If volunteers would like to ask questions about Orthodox religion, they will be able to have a conversation with one of the nuns. The monastery is situated in the center of St. Petersburg. St. Petersburg is famous for being a “cultural capital” of Russia.
Volunteers should be tolerant to Orthodox religion, to follow dress code – for girls it is long skits, which should cover their knees, their heads should be covered by headscarf or something like this. Boys shouldn’t wear T-shirts and shorts in the monastery – more details about dress code you will find in the infosheet.
