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.

Nazareth House Apostolate is the greatest non profit organization I know of. Fr. Seraphim and Vicki are truly inspirational to everyone who knows them because of the devotion they have to this cause, their love for The Lord, and their love for the people they serve. They are 100% dedicated to serving and they do everything with sincerity, integrity, and love. I would highly recommend donating to this organization as you can be sure the money will go directly towards the work that needs to be done. When so many organizations today are not deserving of trust, Nazareth House Apostolate is a breath of fresh air and truly " the real deal".

NHA is by far the greatest non profit we as a church have worked with. I am a pastor of congregation in Springdale Arkansas. After meeting with Fr Seraphim and his lovely wife Vicki we as a church just had to get involved. I can attest to the great amont of passion and devotion which they put into all thier work. If your looking for a great cause to be a part of look no further. Every cent you send goes directly to mission work!

NHA is a religious organization that works in Sierra Leone not to prosthelytize but to improve the lives of the people in rural communities. These people benefit from NHA's commitment to education through access to a school run by locals. In addition, NHA is committed to public health by providing medical treatment and supplies as well as preventive medical resources to the community. Although NHA is based out of Kentucky, it truly has a grassroots feel because it involves and empowers the people of Sierra Leone to increase the wellbeing of those around them.
