Our small Monastery lives in the heart of a hidden treasure for the Orthodox world in the West. The Saints of these Isles shone bright in the first millennium and they are our direct historical link to the very roots of Orthodoxy, our Orthodox DNA.
Our monastic Community has a duty to rediscover these Saints and to bring them back into our lives. More appropriately, we have a duty to educate and to get us back in touch with our own spiritual past. If we forget our roots, we have already condemned our fruit.
Apart from offering free accommodation and board throughout the year, our Monastery organises and leads several paid week-long Pilgrimages to destinations related to the Saints of the Isles. Some years, we also offer pilgrimages to the Monasteries in Moldavia.
Our mission is to expose our modern hearts to the spiritual treasures of the first millennium, with the firm conviction that Grace will enter and work our salvation from within. Seek peace, be still and allow the winds and the waves of this ‘ocean desert’ to speak to you about our Creator and the amazing Saints who served Him ‘at the ends of the world’.
