'''Dormition of Our Loady of Mount Royal''' is a [[Western Rite]] [[stavropegial]] #REDIRECT [[monastery]] Monastery of the [[Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia]] (ROCOR). It is currently located in Jacksonville, Florida.  == History ==Founded in 1910 as an Old Catholic monastery, Mount Royal's mission and work continued under [[Old Catholic]] auspices until 1962. In that year the community was received into the patriarchal Russian Orthodox Church by its American [[exarch]], Bishop [[Dositheus (Ivanchenko) Assumption of New York|Dositheus (Ivanchenko) of New York]]. For several years, the [[monk]]s Our Lady of Mount Royal staffed a Western Rite chapel in the Russian Cathedral of St. Nicholas in Manhattan, later moving to Woodstock, New York. Bishop Dositheus' successor, Archbishop [[John (Wendland) of New York and the Aleutians|John (Wendland)]]Jacksonville, blessed and confirmed the Western Rite observance and mission of Mount Royal and the leadership of its [[abbot]], Dom [[Augustine Whitfield]]. In 1975, under Abbot Augustine, the monastery was received into the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia by Archbishop [[Nikon (Rklitski) of Florida|Nikon (Rklitzsky)]], who again authorized and blessed its mission and observances. In 1993, the former Prior of Mount Royal, Dom James (Deschene) founded [[Christminster]] in Rhode Island, which subsequently relocated to Hamilton, Ontario.  In 2010, Dom Augustine reposed and was succeeded as abbot by Dom David (Pierce). ==External links==* [] Unofficial site* Dom Augustine Whitfield (Abbot of Mount Royal).
