Abstract
Through all its representatives the church has the mission to grow the ideal of Christian morality, by making known to the humans the sacred and eternal teachings of God. Saint George – Buciumeni Monastery is the place where exists a philanthrophic social institution for taking care of the elderly based on the kindly nuns. Here the faithful come to pray or to meditate. Putting into practice the teachings surging in the parable of “The Ten Virgins”, the nuns pray and strive that through their good works they be closed to people’s souls.

Keywords
monastery, church, monasticism, prayer, philanthrophy.
