By the heavenly intercession of St Demetrios, the Myrrhgusher, Wonderworker of Thessaloniki, may our Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on us!
The mission of the monastery is to promote and bear witness to the Gospel through development of:
- Monastic brotherhood and spiritual life,
- Ministries of outreach and specific work of the community, including teaching and ministry in whatever contexts possible
- Publishing and distribution of Orthodox Christian spiritual literature and liturgical goods
By striving for spiritual growth through contemplative prayer, asceticism and life in community, and bearing witness to the Orthodox Faith in Jesus Christ, through hospitality, outreach, preaching and teaching, we seek to develop a monastic complex that will accommodate both the Brotherhood and the pilgrims and guests that come to pray and worship with us, creating a place of spiritual formation, on various levels, to prepare men to bear witness to Christ through their lives, their example, and their preaching.
