In the US, conversion to the Orthodox faith has dramatically increased over the last fifty years. English-speaking Orthodox monasteries like Holy Cross are still relatively new to the West, but they too are experiencing unprecedented growth as men and women from all walks of life make the choice to dedicate their lives to prayer and service to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Since 2010 our monastery has more than doubled in size, and many others are still seeking to join our brotherhood once space permits. By God’s grace we have been able to grow and thrive through the work of our hands and the generous contributions of the faithful who support us, and we are still actively building the monastery so that more men can come join us in our life of repentance.
Bath & Home
Our monastery produces a variety of natural bath and home products. From olive oil castile bar & liquid soap to scented soy wax candles & beeswax lip balm, we make everything from the highest quality ingredients.
Candles & Devotional
Our attached convent produces 100% beeswax candles; we also carry a wide variety of other items—prayer ropes, censers, oils & oil lamps—to enrich your personal devotional life.
