What is really exciting is that the Monastery has been made by the Holy See an independent priory, sui iuris, and the first official conventual prior is Fr. Benedict Nivakoff.  From the monks HERE.

There are also the wondrous Benedictine nuns in Missouri, who are building their church.

Please consider donating in honor of a priest’s vocation.  HERE!

They are in the last phase of building, and you can still get in on sponsoring even objects for worship.
