This Monastery just opened in South Africa. We visited it some years ago when it was in the preparation stages. One of the Clergy in the second pic is a relative of ours : )

That's pretty cool! My students were just asking the other day if monasteries still exist. I'll let them know!

Do they still exist? Do they ever!

There's the "Holy Mountain" - Mt. Athos - that is FULL of them

Here's a directory of the ones just in the US for men (the same site has a directory of women's monasteries)

Here's a blog post about a favorite of mine in Cyprus

And Valaam in Russia (amongst many others)
And more than I count in Cyprus.

And you're not even touching the Catholic or Episcopal ones!

Monasticism is alive & well - and *growing!* : )

With the difficulties in today's world, I can understand why people would seek the peace of a monastery. :)
