SPFL Programs

Our Mission

We recruit volunteers across countries, cultures, and ages to join our programs. And we help Orthodox monks and nuns around the world as well as mission communities.
We travel to Orthodox monasteries, convents, and missions. These communities are in every imaginable climate and geography around the world.
We complete service projects. Sometimes that includes construction other times landscaping and at times helping the members of the community with their work like making bees wax candles or gardening.
In these communities the traditions of the church are kept, preserved, and practiced, lived. They translate ancient texts, produce works of art, and maintain an environment that is peaceful, natural, and quiet. Amidst the world's technologyand busy schedule, there are few places which allow for such settings of retreat and respit.
