Do the Orthodox have private chapels?

Quote
Private chapels have been around for centuries in Europe as a must-have component of any aristocratic country estate. Now, the tradition is catching on in America, according to a piece in the December issue of Town & Country.

In a piece called "Hymns of Stone," Geraldine Fabrikan introduces some of the most outstanding private places of meditation and prayer to be built on this side of the Atlantic.

I suppose some individuals who live far away from the nearest church, and/or have a lot of money, may be interested in doing that. I'm certainly not rolling in cash, but I had always hoped to one day have a place where I could convert a room into a study for quiet reading and prayer.  Smiley

They are called icon corners among the petty bourgeois Orthodox.

My priest is a carpenter and turned the original chapel that he built into what later became our church. There were no Orthodox churches for miles and miles, and so 16 years later it's a thriving (although small) center of Orthodoxy in rural Arkansas.

This wouldn't happen to be All Saints, would it?

Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.
