I think there is not a pilgrim who had no difficulties to make a swift and easy reservation to spend a night in monastery and you know what is the main reason? The monks still use the old-fashioned fax-machine!

Either you do not get connexion, or it might be that the fax machine is out-of-order or monks just don’t answer your fax message.

This is why it is hopeful to see that more and more monasteries and skites throw their fax machines finally out and start to communicate by email. In the list below you will find the email addresses I have been collecting: please help us to make this list as complete as possible ans share new information with us (use the “mail us” option in the Links)!

Please notice: we use the words “at sign” instead of the symbol @, to prevent spy-bots to hack the email addresses of monasteries (thanks Japetusgr).

Wim, 12/2/2019 – update 11

Agiou Pavlou – monastery (moni@agiou-pavlou.gr ; evdokimos at sign me.com)

Xenophontos monastery: arhontariki at sign imxenophontos.gr

I’m fairly certain I had an e-mail confirmation from Philotheou for my 2014 trip. Philotheou and Iviron (which you already have) confirmed by e-mail; Gregoriou and the Lavra didn’t. I’ll see if I still have that Philotheou address on record somewhere, and can hunt it down; but even if not, I know they do have one.

just tried the Iviron email ,but it did not work?

Iviron Monastery: miviron at sign gmail.com

today it worked, but,….no place for me….

I have the same problem with Iviron Monastery and today i called them.

Finally, the correct email for reservation is imiviron at sign gmail.com

Dionysiou monastery: grafiotaxis at sign yahoo.com

Apparently new email address of Dionysiou Monastery (as per mid January 2018): agiosnifon at sign gmail.com

Het e-email adres van Grigoriou is: imog at sign cosmotemail.gr

Great Lavra: iera.moni.megistis.layras at sign gmail.com

Philotheou: grammateia at sign philotheou.gr

Joseph, just to be sure: is “layras” spelled alright, or should it be “lavras”?

Regards, Wim

It’s correct. ‘layras’

Koutloumousiou: imk.athos at sign gmail.com

Thanks Cris, only 6 to go now! Who has more email adresses?

http://www.agioritikiestia.gr/index.php/el/grafeio-proskinitwn

There are also Dionisiou, Pantokratoros and Nea Skitis’ email !!!

Megistis Lavras’ email is correct !

Esphigmenou at Karyes : info at sign esphigmenou.gr

Nr 03 above, Iviron: you read now imiviron, starting with ‘i’. Should be starting with ‘m’. (see Michalis’ reply

Correction: (which you already made, see picture) see Michalis’ dd 21 october correction.

The second email of the Nea Skiti is wrong. When I sent them a letter for reservation I received this reply:

Dear Sir, this is a personal email and cannot respond to hospitality notes. Thank you!

Αυτό είναι προσωπικό email και δεν ανταποκρίνεται σε αιτήματα φιλοξενίας. Ευχαριστώ πολύ!

The first email: eugeniosathos at sign gmail.com is not the email of Nea Skiti too. This is email of the Xenofontini skiti.

Thanks for your update! I knew that father Nikon en Eugenios from Nea skiti would move to skiti Xenofontos, but I didn’t know when. Wim

Dear Brothers, could you please provide e-mail of Agios Andreas Skiti, Nea Skiti, Kafsokalivion Skiti?

Sorry, we do not have any infomation about emailadresses of these three skiti. I had one of father Nikon, but he moved to skiti Xenofontos. Maybe he can give you an email adress in Nea Skiti. nikonathos at sign gmail.com . Or you can try to reach father Eusebios Christofi through Facebook, he lives in Nea Skiti.

10 Docheiariou – dohiarmon at sign gmail.com

Maybe I can give an email adress in Nea Skiti: evangelismos.neaskiti at sign gmail.com or iera.nea.skiti at sign gmail.com .

The email: iera.nea.skiti at sign gmail.com “cannot respond to hospitality notes”. Look up my comment 18 November 2016

This is a great list… I look forward to seeing it as it gets updated.

This is a great list… I look forward to seeing it as it gets updated. Very Interesting photographs of the disinterred Fr. It makes you realize how short our time here on Earth is and to make the most of our time here…

Philotheou Monastery address for reservations is philotheou.filoxenia at sign gmail.com

The e-mail pantokvisit at sign gmail.com is not in use any longer. Any request for accommodation in the Holy Monastery of Pantokrator should be sent exclusively to filoxenia at sign pantokrator.gr

Thanks Gabriel!

Good afternoon

do you have the email address for Saintt Andrew Skiti in Karyes?

No, we’re sorry, all email adresses known to us are published in post 1835. This means do not have communication by email…….

Do you know about Simonopetra and Xenofontos if they accept reservation via email?

I believe they do. Simonospetras for sure.

Herman

Thanks a lot!

Can you tell me what is the email address for the Simonopetra monastery?

hospitality at sign simonopetra.gr

see post 1835

I wonder if anyone managed to visit the Xeropotamou Monastery?

Hello everybody,

I wood like to note, that the mail karakallou at sign yahoo.com is not correct, every time I receiving undelivered MAILER DAEMION message

Try karakallou at sign yahoo.gr i am waiting for a response now.

If it is not a problem, write us please, if you receiving an answer from I.M. Karakallou!

When you send a request to Philotheou Monastery to their grammateia at sign philotheou.gr address they answer by redirecting you to write again to their philotheou.filoxenia at sign gmail.com address. To avoid a needless distraction to the fathers and a waste of effort to the pilgrims, it seems it would be better to remove their grammateia at sign philotheou.gr address from your list.

Done, thanks George

Hello,

do you know the email address of the skiti of St. Andrew in Karyes?

Christ is risen! The Pantokratoros monastery has a new email address: filoxenia at sign pantokrator.gr

I would like to suggest to the webmasters, as there are numerous spybots on the internet today searching for email addresses in order to send spam mail, to help protect the privacy and peace of the monks who are receiving these mails trying to find actual pilgrim reservation requests among tons of spam mail, by concealing the adresses somehow.

Hello to friends of Mount Athos

I have difficulty to reach the Dionisiou monastery – I have tried by email and fax – and got no response

Anyone can help with the latest updated communication link to the monastery?

Many thanks and blessings

David

Hello David, did you try calling the monastery on this telephone number 00302377023687? Wim

The Romanian Skete “Prodromos” have this email: prodromuarhondaric at sign yahoo.com

H.M. Konstamonitou:

imkonstamonitou at sign gmail.com

They replayed with this e-mail address to my Fax and recommended to be used for next reservations.

Always try to go based on a confirmed reservation to an Athos monastery!

They are facing a transition period, from Fax to e-mail, like in the example above.

I sent a Fax (where I had the inspiration to mention my e-mail address), they replayed to me via e-mail, with the recommendation that in the future to use the provided e-mail address for reservations.

Hi, I am trying to reach monastery dionysioy with the given contacts for one week now for several times a day. (email: no answer, fax: doesn’t work, telephone: nobody answers calls )

any idea?

Dionysiou is well known for not answering calls or replying back on emails/faxes.. Provided however you get to the monastery early, you won’t usually have a problem being offered accomodation.

in the meantime i received an confirmation via email. thanks

I have a little different question- maybe someone can help. We have a reservation for May and one person can’t go .We asked in the office in Thessaloniki to change to another person. We are very much interested to change the person and I don’t know if there is anything else I can do.Did anyone have situation like this?

Sorry, I never dealt with this problem. Why should the Pilgrimsbureau in Ouranopolis (not Thessaloniki), not accept a change of persons (as long as the max of 10 non-orthodox pilgrims is not exceeded?)

Yes, and did the office in Thessaloniki not answer? Maybe you shouldn’t call it a change, Just say you have to cancel the first one. Ask then for a permit for the other erson. Isn’t that an option?
