“Our 25th wedding anniversary celebration at Holy Wisdom Monastery was wonderful! The Guest Dining room is so beautiful that we did not need to add any party decorations. The space easily held our 150 guests. They even had the fire pit going on the patio. The Monastery chef prepared a variety of appetizers. They were beautifully presented and delicious. We are still getting compliments from our guests, many of whom are in the restaurant business.
We were especially grateful for how easy it was to arrange everything. Our event coordinator helped plan every detail and was on site to help at the party as well. We definitely recommend Holy Wisdom Monastery and their catering service.”
