Welcome to Christminster

~ Christ the Saviour Monastery:

A Western-Rite Orthodox Benedictine Community

"Never, never, never let anyone tell you that, in order to be Orthodox, you must also be Eastern. The West was Orthodox for a thousand years, and her venerable liturgy is far older than any of Her heresies." + Saint John the Wonderworker of San Francisco +

Our Community

We are a stavropegial community within the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR), established in Rhode Island in 1993 with the blessing of His Beatitude, Metropolitan Hilarion, who authorized our Abbot, the Right Reverend Dom James Deschene (former Prior of the Monastery of Our Lady of Mount Royal), to continue the Western-Rite mission of Mount Royal at a new monastery: Christ the Saviour Monastery.

Christmas Celebration

We invite all to attend our Christmas Eve Mass on
