The Nativity of the Mother of Christ Monastery

The Nativity of the Mother of Christ Monastery is located in the village of Butuceni, also known as the Butuceni Monastery. The monastery has its beginnings from the XV – XVI centuries, when on the place of the current construction there was a small wooden church. The activity of the monastery was closely related to the cave hermitage "Peştera". There are no testimonies of the activity of the hermitages in the area during the XVIII – XIX centuries. Towards the end of the 19th century, the monastic life in the area began to revive. In 1905 the monastery of the Nativity of the Mother of Christ was consecrated and reopened. After the establishment of the Soviet regime, the Nativity of the Mother of Christ monastery, including the cave hermitage of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin sbooks and icons, were ceded to some monasteries in Ukraine. In 1968, the bells were removed and replaced with gas cylinders. The current bells were recently brought from Russia. The current monastic community was officially registered in 1996, and services have been held since 1998.
