Within an urban monastery which plays an important missionary and cultural role in the city life, obediences are related to religious services, scholarly activities, and presentation of the monastery history and traditions perpetuated within the old precincts. Thus, besides the daily monastic services, the monachai (the nuns) bear the obediences of restoring old books, painting icons, knitting prayer ropes, digitization of old books, editing books, leaflets and monographs, writing books and studies on church art and history, studying and promoting the byzantine tradition chants by means of editing CDs. And, in addition to these, they show the church and the museum to the tourists and pilgrims and share the joy of patron saint days and great feasts with all worshippers and friends of our monastery.
