FRIENDS OF MOUNT ATHOS
CORONAVIRUS BRINGS ALL PILGRIMAGE TO ATHOS TO A HALT.
The Society of the Friends of Mount Athos is dedicated to the study and promotion of the history, culture, arts, architecture, natural history, and literature of the Orthodox monasteries of Mount Athos. It also seeks to promote the religious and other charitable work of the Holy Community and the monasteries, both those located on Mount Athos, and those elsewhere which are dependent or connected in some way with Mount Athos.
FOMA also acts as a group of friends and supporters of Mount Athos. In consultation with the monastic authorities, we aim to provide them assistance where it is practicable and needed.
