June Site of the Month: St. Hilarion Monastery
« on: June 07, 2003, 11:53:51 AM »

St. Hilarion Monastery ( has won the June Site of the Month nomination.  It is a Western Rite Monastery under the Synod of Milan.

Resources include many liturgical texts, a Western saints icon gallery, a Press with books and music (including ancient Western Chants), etc.  The plethora of useful resources is why it was selected as the June Site of the Month, but we also respect their efforts to restore Western Orthodoxy.

Some of you questioned whether we should make a monastery not in communion with SCOBA or ROCOR an Site of the Month, but we select a site based on its resources, not necessarily on its jurisdiction.

In Christ,

As it is a beautiful site and a good resource, and as IIRC there is no restriction on this award limiting it to Eastern Orthodox sites, I have no problem with this.

I am fairly sure this award was meant to include Oriental Orthodox, Assyrian, Catholic, interfaith, secular and other sites with content useful to those interested in the Eastern part of Christendom.

My only point, since it's not clear on the site in question, was that it is a non-Orthodox site.

But keeping that in mind, it is a winner.
