Lightning speed shipping! I feel like a sign of a great seller is how swiftly they get out their product and these guys did it with much haste. Beautiful quality candles. Wicks already come trimmed which is thoughtful. It was hard to pick which candle seller to choose because there are so many but I am very happy I picked these guys. Not only does it support a monastery but it's great quality.

This is my second purchase of these. They burn nicely and have a slightly sweet smell ( not scented just nice) and I love them and that it supports the monastery. Shipping was quick and packaged securely. I will continue buying from them.

Lovely. A bright light to read by at night. Efharisto. The monastery stays in my prayers. Love in Christ.

I love these! They burn clean, they don't drip, and they smell wonderful. This was my second order. I went ahead and placed another order to give a set to my church.

I’ve been buying candles from St. John’s Monastery for a couple of years. I love the quality of what they do.

Fantastic candles! They have the most lovely smell and burn beautifully. I will definitely be ordering more.

Wonderful incense. It is much smokier than the sticks I normally use, so I will be using it outside or in larger spaces than my tiny meditation room.
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 obediences (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.
