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.
Our Lord and God Jesus Christ says: “Blessed are they who hear the word of God and keep it” (Lk. 11:28).
St. John the Evangelist states the following in the book of Revelation: “Blessed is he who reads and they who hear the words of this prophecy, and who keep the things that are written therein” (Rev. 1:3).
