All-Merciful Savior Monastery is a monastic community of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia and is the only male Orthodox monastery in Washington state. It was established in 1986 by Archimandrite Dmitri of Santa Rosa, California, and in 1988, under the leadership of the Very Rev. Igumen Tryphon, moved to Vashon Island, Washington.

In 1992, islanders Georgia and John Ratzenberger ("Cliff" from the US television series "Cheers") donated five acres of land to the monastery. In 1999, to protect the solitude of the monastery, the brotherhood purchased an adjacent eleven acres of land to save it from development. Along with an adjacent, publicly-owned 40 acre watershed, the monastery is quietly secluded in the forests of Maury Island.

The holy brotherhood has constructed a small chapel, dedicated to Saint John the Wonderworker, a main temple, dedicated to the Holy Protection of the Mother of God, a large trapeza, the Metropolitan Laurus Memorial Library, the Way of a Pilgrim gift shop and bookstore, and seven monastic cells.

The holy brotherhood supports itself by producing a line of gourmet coffees, under the brand name, Monastery Blend Coffee, which can be ordered through the brotherhood's website: http://www.vashonmonks.com
