The Monastery of St. Macarius the Great of Egypt is a community of nuns of the Diocese of the West of the Orthodox Church in America. Our monastery was established in 2015 and has since grown, by the grace and blessing of God. We strive to live a traditional communal Orthodox monastic life according to the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and the rich wellspring of the teachings of the Early Fathers of the Church.

The Backpack drive has begun for students returning to Whittier School.  You can sponsor a backpack for $30 See attachment.

 When parking please be courteous and do not block anyone in.  If the church lot is full you may park on the street or across the street at Bamboo Bakery.

During the summer months when you are traveling on vacation please don’t forget the church. Always remember to tithe, as this is very important,and an offering to God. The tithe goes into the operating budget to keep the church running, and in this way we are able to bring Christ to the community.    

Prayer, fasting, vigil and all other Christian activities, however good they may be in themselves, do not constitute the aim of our Christian life, although they may serve as the indispensable means of reaching the end. The true aim of our Christian life consists in the acquisition of the Holy Spirit of God. As for fasts and vigils, and prayer, and almsgiving, and every good deed done for Christ’s sake, they are only means of acquiring the Holy Spirit of God. But mark, my son, only the good deed done for Christ;s sake brings us the fruits of the Holy Spirit.  All that is not done for Christ’s sake even though it be good, brings neither reward in the future life nor the grace of God in this.   St. Seraphim of Sarov


The Mission of The Orthodox Church in America, the local autocephalous Orthodox Christian Church, is to be faithful in fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Daily Readings >

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
