Our Spiritual Father

Dayroyo Theodosius

I sit quietly and listen to the silence, for there is where we hear God. 

God works quietly, so we need to listen to the silence. 

Our Patriarch has said that there are five marks of the Church: one, holy, Catholic, apostolic — and persecuted. 

He prays lot, and when he gets done, he starts all over again.

"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 are a Monastic Community and intentional Orthodox Christian community who live according to the Gospel located in Plymouth, Indiana 

Serving God by Serving the Poor and the Poorest of the Poor. the disenfranchised and marginalized, We are part of the Syriac Orthodox Church.    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.

The Coal Basket

 Father Theodosius tells the story of the young boy who attempted to  carry water in a basket and how this story tells us why we read the Holy  Bible and what it means to those in recovery.
