Doesn't the east coast have enough monasteries? Is it too much to ask for one here in the Great Plains (that isn't ROCOR)?Every state and province in North America needs at least one monastery!
They should found this one in Montana, lots of land and it's sparsely populated, the perfect environment for a monastery.
Well, the OCA is establishing one. It is being established by the monks of St. John of San Francisco (Manton) with help from some monks of St. Herman of Alaska (Platina).
The vision for this place is lovely. Lots of inspiration from the Iveron monastery on Athos.http://stpetersmonastery.com/vision/
