'''All-Merciful Savior Monastery''' is blessed by God as the only male monastery in Washington state. It was established in 1986 by Archimandrite Dmitri of blessed memory in California. In 1988, under the God-protected leadership of Hieromonk Tryphon, the Monastery moved to Vashon Island, Washington.
In 1997, Islanders Georgia and John Ratzenberger ("Cliff" from the US television series "Cheers") donated land to the Monastery. In 1999, to protect the solitude of the Monastery, the benefactors of the Monastery enabled the Brotherhood to purchase an adjacent piece of land and save it from development. Along with the 40 acre watershed, the Monastery is quietly secluded in the forests of Maury Island.
