Help us build a strong foundation of Orthodoxy in America

 

Over the last decade our brotherhood has more than doubled in size, as have the number of clergy, monastics and pilgrims who visit the monastery each year. We have far outgrown the small chapel we built when the monastery first moved to West Virginia, and desperately need a new temple to accommodate both our countless visitors as well as the many men waiting to enter the monastery once the new monastery church has been completed.

We have always striven to live by the work of our hands, but in order to achieve our goal of building a new place of worship we need your help. Please consider joining our Benefactors, Friends and Founders program by making a monthly contribution to the construction and material needs of our new church.
