Saint Nektarios Monastery was founded and established in January 1999 by the reverend Elder Ephraim with the blessing of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. The purpose of the Monastery is to provide a spiritual setting wherein worship and doxology of the Holy Trinity can take place ceaselessly by the resident monks; to be a luminous example of virtue and holy conduct for the faithful; and to preserve the sacred traditions of the Orthodox Church and transmit them to the ensuing generations.
When a queen enters the royal palace, none of the guards dare stop her. No one examines her. No one questions her, “who are you? Where are you going?” On the contrary, all the members of the royal family welcome her joyfully. This is also how almsgiving enters Heaven, where she is received and led before the regal throne of God.READ MORE
