  • Welcome

    Welcome to the homepage of Holy Resurrection Monastery, a Byzantine monastery of the Romanian Greek-Catholic Church.

    We are a small community of men dedicated to living and reviving monasticism in the Eastern Catholic Churches, here in our small village among the beautiful green pastures of Wisconsin.

    Please feel free to browse this website for information about our lives and our ministries of prayer, hospitality, spiritual direction and evangelization through education and adult faith formation.

  • Calendar

    • Friday, May 20, 4:00 PM
      In a monastic setting we will experience different ways to pray. This will take us to the ancient “Jesus Prayer:”, praying with icons and immersion in the liturgical prayer of the Eastern Churches.
    • Saturday, May 28, 7:00 AM - 1:00 PM
    • Friday, June 3, 4:00 PM
      Bible Study. Private prayer. The rich Liturgical prayer of the Eastern Church. Opportunities for confessions and individual spiritual direction. This retreat is designed to make these treasures of the Church accessible and relevant to men in the 21st Century.
    • Saturday, June 25, 7:00 AM - 1:00 PM
    • Friday, July 8
      In our world of noise, we often miss the spiritual beauty of silence. We will invite you to take this time to pray and meditate in that silence.
    • Saturday, July 30, 7:00 AM - 1:00 PM
  • Searcher for the Lost

    (Image: Icon of the 'Theotokos, Searcher for the Lost' at Holy Resurrection Monastery written by Melkite Priest Rt. Rev Mark Melone)

    Within the 
    Temple  , O Temple of Life, you found Him whom the universe cannot contain, silencing the teachers by the word of God which is above the wisdom of the wise. O all-pure Mother of God, cease not seeking your children who are lost; that we may treasure Christ in our hearts, and find eternally our Father's House.
