Тропарь и величание иконе Божией Матери Казанская

Заступнице усердная, / Мати Господа Вышняго, / за всех молиши Сына Твоего Христа Бога нашего, / и всем твориши спастися, / в державный Твой покров прибегающим. / Всех нас заступи, о Госпоже Царице и Владычице, / иже в напастех и в скорбех, и в болезнех, обремененных грехи многими, / предстоящих и молящихся Тебе умиленною душею/ и сокрушенным сердцем, / пред пречистым Твоим образом со слезами / и невозвратно надежду имущих на Тя, / избавления всех зол, / всем полезная даруй / и вся спаси, Богородице Дево: / Ты бо еси Божественный Покров рабом Твоим.

Welcome to Our Lady of Kazan Convent website!

A Monastery with 4 founding brothers was established on the present site in the early 1950's, on a piece of land donated by Archdeacon Peter Grishaev. A monastic building and the All Saints Church were errected.  The late 1950's saw the arrival from China of an enormous wave of refugees, including those in monastic orders. Most of those people, including the elderly nuns, settled in or near a suburb of Sydney named Cabrammatta. The sisters assisted the monks in  their daily work at the Monastery, which was then,in the late 1950's,  handed over to them, the brothers establishing a skete, with a candle factory and workshop, in honour of St. John the Baptist next door. It seemed that the Convent would die out, but in 1984 a stream of young novices began to join. At that time work commenced on a new brick Church in honour of the Kazan Icon of the Holy Theotokos, together with a new building to house the monastic cells. A Russian old-age home and retirement village with a libraray and hall also came into existence along-side the Convent.The Nuns perform their obedience by chanting in Church, working in the garden and kitchen, baking prosphoras for the Liurgy and acclaimed rye bread, sewing and embroidering, making prayer ropes (chetki), greeting cards, decorative eggs, tending to the elderly and those in need.
