Welcome to Saint Nicholas Monastery!
The sacred Monastery of Saint Nicholas is an Orthodox Christian monastery for women under the omophorion of His Eminence, the Most Reverend Metropolitan Hilarion, First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR).
The Monastery is situated on a beautiful 11-acre property which, with the help of volunteers, is being transformed into a place of splendor and spiritual retreat. Among the treasures of the Monastery are many holy relics, some of which are on permanent display in the church for veneration by the faithful.
Some of the Monastery's priceless treasures are sacred relics of the life-creating Holy Cross of Christ, the precious Belt (pokrova) of the All-Holy Mother of God, and a holy relic of our Father among the Saints Nicholas, Archbishop of Myra of Lycia, the Wonderworker, patron of the Monastery. Located at the Monastery are two chapels, one dedicated to the Holy glorious Prophet Moses the God-Seer and the other to our Father among the Saints Nektarios, Metropolitan of Pentapolis, the Wonderworker; the Archimandrite John Memorial Library; as well as a gift shop/bookstore; candle shop; sewing room; crafts room; trapeza (dining hall); iconography studio; various gardens; and other dedicated spaces.
Services are celebrated mainly in English, with some Slavonic and Hellenic. Other languages may periodically be used, according to pastoral needs. Periodically, the Monastery brings Russian-speaking clergy to hear confessions. Pilgrims and volunteers are welcome!
