About Us

We Listen to the Silence to Hear God

We are a Monastic Community  who live according to the Gospel  

We are part of the Syriac Orthodox Church.
We strive for a balance of communal and private prayer and work. 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.
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).

A Place to Meet Christ

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. 

We Serve God

We are a Monastic Community   who live according to the Gospel  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.
