Welcome to our website!

We are a cenobitic community for women under the omophorion of His Eminence Archbishop Nathaniel of the Romanian Orthodox Episcopate of the Orthodox Church in America.

Our monastery is dedicated to one of the greatest feast days of the Orthodox Church, the falling asleep of the Theotokos, celebrated on August 15. A complete schedule of the services offered for the Feast can be found here.

The monastery was founded in 1987 and is located in south central Michigan. It serves as a haven of spiritual retreat from the stress of the secular world; a place for spiritual guidance and growth. The foundation of this monastery represents the unity of Orthodox Christianity and faith and its continuity in this land. We hope and pray that this holy place will continue to grow, reaching the heights of all spiritual understanding.
