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.
In 1953 (twenty three years after his repose) Saint Nektarios’ sanctified body began to undergo decomposition. The formal exhumation took place at 8:00 pm on September 2nd, 1953. Metropolitan Prokopios of Hydra, Spetses, and Aegina was presiding over the service; Metropolitan Anthony of Elia, and many others were also in attendance.READ MORE
