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.
