History: The first Orthodox women’s convent in Belgium was founded in December 1999 when two nuns from the convent of St John the Baptist in The Hague (Netherlands) moved into a house at Trazegnies, close to Charleroi. The house, with a garden and a barn converted into a chapel, constitutes the convent, which lives from donations, the sale of prayer beads and icon painting.
