Monastery and Retreat Center
We, at the Dormition of Mary Orthodox Monastery, have found an already functioning retreat center for sale in Houston, TX with enough land to also build a monastery and some needed chapels. The retreat center already serves diverse communities and is booked 50/52 weekends a year, most of 2019 is already booked.
The current owner can no longer keep up with the pace and they would love for us to be able to continue the work they have been doing for the last 8 years.
Being able to acquire this property will fulfill a long time goal of the monastery to have a space to promote Christian unity. Along with the Western Rite chapel of Our Lady of Lourdes, which will have Eucharistic Adoration; an Eastern Rite chapel of St. Nicholas will be erected for those groups of the Eastern church to be able to celebrate their services or join with the monks of the monastery. Lastly, a simple non-denominational chapel will be erected for those traditions or groups that are not of the Apostolic Tradition to gather and celebrate according to their custom. A residence building will be erected at the back of the side property for the monastic community which will ultimately grow here, flourish, and be a constant support to the people of Houston.
