== 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) of Brooklyn|Dositheus (Ivanchenko) of New York]]. For several years, the [[monk]]s 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)]], 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 2010, Abbot Augustine reposed and was succeeded by Abbot David (Pierce).
