Who we are

We are a community of Christian nuns of the Diocese of the West of the Orthodox Church in America, under the omophorion of His Eminence Archbishop Benjamin. Our monastery was established in 2015, and has since grown, by the grace and blessing of God.

We strive to live a traditional communal Orthodox monastic life according to the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and the rich wellspring of the teachings of the Early Fathers of the Church.

We welcome you to get to know our community!

Church Calendar Followed: “New” (Revised Julian)

Feast Day: January 19th (St. Macarius the Great of Egypt)

The newly formed monastic community of St.Macarius the Great of Egypt was established by a group of former Coptic Orthodox Christians—the natives of Egypt.
A core group of the members of this monastic community was received in the Orthodox Church by Metropolitan Kallistos (Ware) in United Kingdom and then moved to the United States. Back in Egypt, they belonged to the so-called “Makarasat” lay movement which is known for its charity and education work within the Coptic community. Presently, the Monastery of St. Macarius the Great of Egypt uses the facility of the former Roman Catholic convent.

The power of Christian prayer Open our ears to hear
Blessed Lord, open our ears to hear what Thou speakest and our eyes to see as Thou seest. Give us hearts to beat in sympathy with Thine at the sight of every little child; and above all, our Lord, to understand and experience how surely and how blessedly Thou fulfilest Thy promise, "Whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me."
