Holy Cross Orthodox Monastery (Toronto, Ontario)
The Holy Cross Orthodox Monastery is a new monastery located in Toronto, Ontario that is part of the Romanian Orthodox Archdiocese of America and Canada.
The monastery was founded on March 1, 2007 and is located in the residential area of the city. The monastery currently uses an Anglican/Episcopalian rectory, but plans to establish themselves in the countryside outside of Toronto.
Currently, Hieromonk Nicolas is the only monk in residence. Plans are being formed to invite some monks from Romania to join Archimandrite Nicolas. The monastery is a "House of prayer for all nations" that, even though English is the primary language used in the services, with some Romanian, use of other languages is contemplated. Pious men who desire to serve the Lord within the Angelic/Monastic way of life are invited to join the community.
