Is there a listing of all the Western Rite Orthodox monasteries in the U.S.? I'm also curious to learn how they came about and whether it was done organically or a monastery converted. I also wonder who approached who when a monastery converted en masse
to Orthodoxy. Have jurisdictions approached groups or was it the other way around?
The reason I ask is because there is a Benedictine monastery about 30 mins. from me that left Rome after Vatican II in the 1960s. They don't seem to be connected to any particular "schismatic group" from the aftermath of that council. I would love to see a monastery like this enter into union with the Orthodox Church. I might be a bit biased, but I think they would do well to enter into union.
