Protection of the Most Holy Theotokos

Raphael Doxos, "I am an Orthodox Christian working out his salvation in Asheville, North Carolina, CSA. I blog a good number of things here, sometimes religious, sometimes not." points us to this newest arrival in our mountains -

"The Protection of the Most Holy Theotokos Monastery is an institution of the Orthodox Church in America under the direct jurisdiction of the Primate, His Beatitude Metropolitan HERMAN.

Beginning community life in South Florida on June 7, 1982, the present monastery comprises five monastics following the traditional life of Orthodox monks.

With the blessing of Metropolitan HERMAN, the brotherhood is now located in the mountains of rural western North Carolina, where conditions seem beautifully suited to the monastic way of life.

Monks of this monastery may be involved in any honorable work which is not inconsistent with monastic values or the horarium of the monastery."

Welcome to Asheville, Holy ones. We hope you find it to your liking!
