Holy Archangels Greek Orthodox Monastery
Holy Archangels - Kendalia TX

Founded by Elder Ephrem of Mt. Athos in 1996, this is a growing, vibrant monastery rooted in the Athonite Orthodox Tradition. The Monastery stands on 140 acres of land in the Texas Hill Country some 40 miles northwest of San Antonio. All nine brothers speak English, but the liturgical language is exclusively Greek. Men may stay overnight in the monastery, but women must find lodging in a nearby town. Well worth a visit and your support!

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Daily Readings >

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
