St. Mary of Egypt Convent: The first women's Orthodox monastery in Uganda


From the website of the Convent:


Patriarch Theodoros II with sisters, Thavoria, Maria and Theosemni

St. Mary of Egypt Convent is located near Kampala, Uganda. Established in 2001, under the Patriarchate of Alexandria, the convent is currently home to three sisters, and five novices, all native Ugandans. Through activities such as iconography, hand crafts, sewing, table wine, and gardening, the sisters are working to sustain the needs of the young monastery as well as the orphan children who make the convent their home.
