WELCOME TO 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 is composed of men and women. We were established in Rhode Island in 1993 with the blessing of His Grace Bishop (now Metropolitan) Hilarion, then Bishop of Manhattan, who asked our present Abbot, the Rt. Rev. Dom James M. Deschene (formerly the Prior of the Monastery of Our Lady of Mount Royal), to continue the Western-Rite mission of Mount Royal in a new independent monastery under the title of Christ the Saviour Monastery.
We encourage all to join us in praying the Daily Offices wherever they may be.
