About

What is so good or so joyous as for brethren to dwell together in unity. (Psalm 133:1)

Our Monastic Community struggles to preserve the authentic tradition of Athonite monasticism - a life of repentance, and obedience. Our obedience's (daily work) are accompanied by continual prayer, and the motivation to please God through our small labors. We hope you enjoy our products and experience the blessedness of the Monastic way of life.
