“Introduction to the Holy Archangels Greek Orthodox Monastery,” by J. Mark Brewer of Brewer & Pritchard, P.C.

January 31, 2013

Established in 1996, the Holy Archangels Greek Orthodox Monastery provides a place of redemption and repentance for pious visitors, as well as for men in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America who are devoted to living the monastic tradition. The monastery is located in the small town of Kendalia, Texas, outside of San Antonio. Although it is a male-only monastery, both men and women may visit.

Eight Athonite monks and their spiritual father Elder Ephraim founded the Holy Archangels Greek Orthodox Monastery, and, today, the monastery remains a monastery of eight monks. Pilgrims may visit year round but should note that the monastery’s gates are locked after dark. Wild animals are not uncommon in this isolated area, and visitors should keep children within sight at all times.
