The ROCOR Western Rite's principal monastery, Christminster, has received several offers for a new home in the time since they received their eviction notice from the current premises.

Pray that they will find peace and stability in their new home.

Ah, this is good. Closer to me here in Buffalo, and I do not even need to worry about crossing the border.

Further update:

It seems that this is just a temporary move and the monks are looking for a more permanent establishment for the monastery, preferably in Canada.

Their Facebook page seems to be updated more than their website: https://www.facebook.com/christminster?hc_location=timeline

CHRISTMINSTER: A NEW CHAPTER

By the grace of God, and with the help of many dear friends, the monks of Christminster moved out of their old premises over a two day period of 30/31 May, having been told they must leave the premises by the first of June. The move happened to coincide with an early tropical heat wave and torrential rains which added considerably to an already stressful situation.  By the promised prayers of many well-wishers we survived the ordeal and are now located in St George’s rectory in Niagara Falls, New York. We owe this new monastic home to the kindness and good will of our dear friend and benefactor Archbishop Peter Goodrich of the Independent Anglican Church of Canada. He has also made available to us for our liturgical services the use of his cathedral next to the rectory. He and his clergy and staff have been most gracious and welcoming to us.
    In addition to the many who have supported us with their prayers we wish to thank heartily those who helped us with the actual move: Pavlos Pavlakis, Joanna Thomson, the twins, Greg Wiebe, Edward Akiwumi and Steve Camp (“the boys from Buffalo”) and anonymous helpers at the church.
     While we are moved in, we are by no means settled in as there is still much unpacking to do. Fortunately we can unpack at our own pace, without a deadline hanging over us as it had been in Canada. Our stay here in New York is not likely to be a permanent one, but we have been assured by Archbishop Peter that we can stay here as long as we need. We do hope to return one day to Canada if we can find a suitable monastic site. In the mean time we are assured of a reasonable measure of peace, stability and quiet for the living out of our monastic life.
      For the time being our Sunday Mass will be in the Cathedral at 8 o’clock AM. (The Anglican service on Sunday in the Cathedral, usually celebrated by the Archbishop is at 9:30 AM).
     Our mailing address is: Christminster, 1910 Falls Street, Niagara Falls, NY 14303.
     Our telephone numbers:
           Abbot James M Deschene: 716 545 5127
           Fr. Joseph Delgiorno: 716 545 1974
           Fr. Daniel Ritty: 419 565 0416
      With profound gratitude to Almighty God and to friends and benefactors, we ask for your continued prayerful support in the years ahead.

God help them!

The fathers of Christminster are true Benedictines--very hospitable, prayerful, and joyful.

So, why were the monks evicted?  I thought they were given the building by their benefactor Reader Polycarp?

Indeed! I hope they can find a new, permanent home soon.
