Monastery and Retreat Center
We, at the Dormition of Mary Orthodox Monastery, have been looking for a permanent home for a monastery and retreat center. We believe that God's will is to have us provide a home for young men to work in his service and to also provide a place for people of all walks of life to have a spiritual home to have their needs met as well. At some point we would also like to welcome a home for women to open a convent.
It is important that people have a return to God. Many are not being fed at the churches they attend with what they need. Rather than learning and understanding what God wills in their lives, they seek out churches that have bent the rules to accomodate what they think church should be. Jesus told us that "we must take up OUR cross daily and follow him" and so many have rejected this call.
Please help us to fund the purchase and construction needs for a monastery that will be open to all Christians with a focus on Christian Unity.
