The monastery serves the homeless and the near homeless, the disenfranchised and poor, those not seen and those no one wants to see. We serve all that Christ brings to our doors or leads us to on the streets.
We are a Monastic Community who live according to the Gospel
We serve the homeless and the near homeless, the disenfranchised and poor, those not seen and those no one wants to see. We serve all that Christ brings to our doors or leads us to on the streets We are part of the Syriac Orthodox Church.
Few Christian denominations can claim the antiquity of the Syriac Orthodox Church of Antioch, whose foundations can be traced back to the very dawn of Christianity. The Church justifiably prides itself as being one of the earliest established apostolic churches. It was in Antioch, after all, that the followers of Jesus were called Christians as we are told in the New Testament, "The disciples were first called Christians in Antioch." (Acts 11:26).
We strive for a balance of communal and private prayer, work, and leisure in our lives. Through our diverse ministries we are committed to helping create a more just and compassionate world. Christ tells us “Whatsoever you do to the least of my people, so you do unto me.” If we listen, we hear the call to be open to one another, to give what we have and to welcome all guests as we would welcome Christ. We are a place of healing and nourishment, where folks respond to each others human needs. It is the generosity of caring people that makes our work possible.
Serving God by Serving the Poor and the Poorest of the Poor. the disenfranchised and marginalized.
"The martyrs will come, bearing their afflictions, and the righteous will come, bearing their virtues." Our beloved children heard and responded to this invitation today. May we all follow them.
We love to meet and listen to new friends.
