The community consists of women living the monastic tradition of a Christ-centered prayer life for the monastic members. To support the monastery, the sisterhood has sewing as its main source of income; additionally, making prayer ropes, decorating eggs, painting and mounting icons, publishing a journal and books, hosting retreats and speaking at functions are all a part of the monastery's income. Other activities include hospitality to visitors, taking care of the monastery's cemetary and maintaining a large vegetable garden, as well as everything required to sustain the life of the community.
