The Holy Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Monastery

Our Monastery is named after the Holy Transfiguration of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, which is one of the greatest events that took place in the history of our Lord's life on earth, and consequently is celebrated in our Church as one of the greatest feast days of the year. We celebrate the feast day of our monastery on August 5th and 6th every year. Everyone is welcome to attend - please check our website a few days before the event for schedules and other information. The small chapel that we have at the Monastery is dedicated to St. John the Evangelist and Theologian. All of our daily services are held in this chapel. We also have a smaller celebration of the feast day of St. John the Theologian, which according to the Church calendar takes place on May 7th and 8th every year. Besides being busy with the upkeeping of the grounds, many handicrafts are made at the Monastery. Some of them, accordingly wrapped, are available as gifts for baptisms and weddings. Also, monastic clothes are custom tailored at the Monastery, as well as vestments, rhasa, and hats for Orthodox clergy. We also make pure beeswax candles. The above-mentioned items and handicrafts can all be viewed by locating them on the menu on the left. The gate is open daily between 6:00 am and 7:00 pm, and everyone is welcome to visit. If you would like to speak with one of the monks, or make an appointment for confession, then it is better that you schedule an appointment beforehand. Visit the contact us page for more details. Please also note that you may now download the 40-day Liturgy Form from this website (for commemoration of the living and the reposed) in order to send them to the Monastery.
