The Monastery functions as a double community. The brothers and sisters live two hours apart, in separate houses on the Isle of Mull, and we meet for worship on Feast Days (including Sundays) and for particularly difficult work days.

Our brotherhood is based at Lunga Cottage, by Kilninian Church.

Our sisterhood is based at Oran na Mara, village of Bunessan, fifteen minutes from the Isle of Iona.

We are a multi-national community, with members from Canada, the United States of America and Romania.

Our liturgical and daily language is English.

The Monastery welcomes inquires from Orthodox people who are trying to discern their monastic vocation. If you feel God is calling you to the monastic life, write to fr Seraphim personally at
