There is such an amazing kind of person — someone who performs a feat, but does not know about it. He does not allow himself to be evaluated, does not give himself names. He is not a philanthropist. He does good for himself as the norm and just lives. And thanks to him, others live. If I were asked to describe the sisters of the St. Elizabeth Sisterhood, I would do it exactly like this.
Today, when the image of Russia is not always associated with good, there are still people who make life in the country better. They are ordinary parishioners, women of different ages and positions. They are united only by motivation — helping one’s neighbor. The path to faith and social service for each of them is also unique: for some it is a story of roots from early childhood, connected with parental will, for someone a haven and consolation after many years of illness and grief, for someone a point of arrival on a long journey of spiritual search.
Despite the fact that the sisterhood is directly connected with the church, their activity is primarily a function of social assistance, which they provide to everyone regardless of religious beliefs.
And no matter what happens, they will continue to help dying, seriously ill, poor people, praying every day for peace and love.
