We are Christian nuns of the Diocese of the West of the Orthodox Church in America, under the omophorion of His Eminence Archbishop Benjamin.

We live together in a communal life style, according to the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and the rich wellspring of the teachings of the Early Fathers of the Church.

St. Mary of Egypt is the patron saint of our monastery.
