Ss. Mary and Martha Monastery is a monastic community for women in the Diocese of the South of the Orthodox Church in America. It is located in Wagener, South Carolina.

The community was founded in 1989 under the auspices of His Eminence Archbishop Dmitri, Archbishop of Dallas and the South. The monastery has been located in Wagener, South Carolina since June 1996 on a sixty acre site about 30 miles southwest on Columbia, South Carolina.

The community consists of women living the monastic tradition of a Christ-centered prayer life for the monastic members. The community conducts numerous retreats and maintains a hermitage for those who need a few days of solitude, silence, and prayer.

To support the community the women run the St. Wiborada Bindery and Book Repair Shop and make candles at the St. Joseph Candle Shoppe.

Currently the community is developing plans to build a monastery building, with brick exterior to fit in with the traditional brick buildings of the area. The new building will replace the doublewide, prefab home that they now use. This home will become the monastery guesthouse.
