Among the many relics housed at St. Sabbas is the epitrachelion (stole) which was removed from the body of St. Sabbas at his monastery in Jerusalem and given to Archimandrite Pachomy in 2012.

In addition, the monastery possesses the skufia (hat) of St. John Jacob the Chozebite (d. 1960), a Romanian cave-dweller and wonder-worker who was a monk at the original St. Sabbas Monastery in Jerusalem, as well as a large piece of his body (the only one outside of the Holy Land and Romania).

All relics are kept in the monastery church for monks and pilgrims to venerate.



St. Sabbas Monastery is blessed to maintain fraternal relations with many Orthodox churches around the world, particularly with the churches and monasteries of the Jerusalem Patriarchate.

See the gallery for photos from past pilgrimages.
