Unlike the traditional bookstore, our main purpose is the spiritual benefit of those souls seeking to grow. This focus, rooted in the ancient deserts of Egypt where faithful pilgrims used to walk tirelessly through the sweltering sun of the desert to find an elder and hear “a word of wisdom by which they may live”.
By the grace of God, the Abbey is continuously growing and the need to accommodate the monks and visitors has led to the start of multiple projects.
Please consider donating through the diocese and selecting “St. Mary and St. Moses Abbey” or one of our project designations as the option. Thank you for all of your support.
Throughout the year, St. Mary & St. Moses Abbey hosts individuals, families and groups who come to the monastery to nurture their spiritual lives through prayer, meditation, and a peaceful atmosphere away from the cares of daily life.
The monastery will be open during Nativity and Lent seasons.
