We'd like to thank P4K for providing people an easy avenue for supporting the monastery as 100% of the donations will go the monastery.
Over a decade ago, through the Grace of God, a Greek Orthodox male Monastery was established in the city of Perth in Western Australia. This Holy Monastery dedicates itself primarily to reverent prayer and Love of God. The Monks pray for the world and the salvation of their souls.
Whilst the Holy Monastery follows the Byzantine rhythm of daily services for monastic communities it also services the Orthodox Community in many important and variant ways.
The Abbot of the Holy Monastery is Archimandrite Evagrios, previously from the Holy Monastery of Simonos Petra, Mount Athos. He came to Western Australia over 12 years ago to establish the Monastery. Currently, there are a total of three monks.
What will your contribution fund?
The Holy Monastery of Saint John is in its developmental stage and there are considerable amounts of construction work still to be completed. The buildings to be constructed are necessary to achieve a functional coenobitic Monastery. Coenobitic monasticism is a monastic tradition that stresses community life between all who reside there.
Future Development projects for the Monastery include:
• The Cemetery
• A Book Shop for Orthodox spiritual texts
• The Communal Hall for fellowship gatherings
• The Guest House
• Driveways and other infrastructure
Without the support of our beloved brothers and sisters who reside in the world, such important and valuable aspects of our Holy Tradition (ie. Monasticism) would not be able to continue for the salvation and support of the people of God.
Although the monastic life is indeed a calling for certain members of our Orthodox Christian communities, we have a responsibility to support and care for our brothers and sisters who have chosen to dedicate their life to God in prayer for the world.
We very much appreciate your support and we pray for you always.
“The matter of almsgiving is not only for the rich and affluent but also those of average means and the poor are able to play their part. Those who are unequal in their capacity to give can be equal in the love within their hearts.” - St Leo the Great
