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.
If a drop of water that continuously drips upon a hard rock eventually erodes it over time, how is it possible for the rivers of graces and blessings that God pours upon us not to soften our hearts? If steel, when it is placed in a fire, becomes red hot and indistinguishable from the fire on account of its contact with it, how is it possible for our hearts not to ignite and be set ablaze as they are ceaselessly enveloped with God’s divine love? How is it possible for us ungrateful ones to disregard such a Lord and transgress His commandments?READ MORE
