Thank you for inquiring!

What is our application process?

The process will start by filling out the contact us form, and beginning to have a conversation about your monastic calling and discernment with a member of our Community. If one wishes to proceed, an Inquirer would start the Application Process, which includes:

  • the candidate’s application,

  • copies of certificates proving the candidate has received all the holy Mysteries of Initiation (i.e... Baptism, Chrismation, or Confirmation), or be willing to receive them,

  • a letter of recommendation from the candidate’s Pastor, other priest, or religious acceptable to the Hegumen Abbot,

  • at least one other letter of recommendation from another person who knows the candidate well that is not a significant other,

  • all other information that would be relevant in considering the candidate’s application

  • *a $120 application contribution for administrative costs.

Once the application is complete, one would be received into the Postulancy at the following Convocation of the Community.

 

Once our Community has reached it's canonical status per the Typikon - Codes and Canons we will begin admitting novices. *Scholarships may be available.

Prayer for Acceptance of God's Will

"Lord, I do not know what to ask of You. You know better than me what my needs are. You love more than I know how to love. Help me to see clearly my real needs which I do not see. I open my heart to You. Examine and reveal to me my faults and sins. I put all trust in You. I have no other desire than to fulfill Your will. Teach me how to pray. Amen"
