The Mission of Nazareth House Apostolate is ongoing prayer. Living the life of prayer in community at St. Simeon Skete. We believe that this benefits the world and brings peace at levels that round tables and politics cannot reach. Blossoming from this prayer is the physical work of Nazareth House in which we save lives and provide for the poor, regardless of religion, race, ethnic background, etc. in areas of the world that are in turmoil from war or acts of nature.

My name is Lucy, I am a citizen of Sierra Leone, NHA has changed and saved my life. I was but a toddler when I met Seraphim and Vicki. NHA has placed me in the best schools in Sierra Leone and saw to my education. I came to the States to visit them and speak with their Board of Directors about my desire to become a doctor in my country. Especially after Ebola, Sierra Leone needs medical professionals desperately. During my stay in America, I became ill and needed heart surgery. Again NHA was there for me all the way. Today I am beginning medical professional education sponsored by NHA so that my dream of helping my country can be a reality. I have witnessed first hand the endless shipments of medical supplies, the growth in enrollment and programs in the school in Kabala that they own and operate, plus I've seen the supplies they get to the villages around Kabala. I've helped personally deliver rice and medical supplies to Kroo Bay and in the villages. I see the result of every donation. I see it get to the poorest of the people. NHA is the best.
