The Only Monastery in the Orthodox World Dedicated to the Holy Innocents

The Sacred Monastery of the Holy Infants was established in the year 2000 with the blessing of the then Metropolitan Hieronymos of Thebes and Levadeia (currently the Archbishop of Athens and All Greece). It is located between Oinoi of Attica and Panakto of Thebes. The katholikon of the Monastery was consecrated by Archbishop Hieronymos on the 17th of November 2007. There are currently a total of five nuns in the Monastery. Next to the katholikon is a cemetery exclusively for infants who died prematurely. There is also a playground for children.
