St. Sabbas Orthodox Monastery, located in Harper Woods, Michigan, is a men's monastery following the patristic Julian calendar. The monastery was founded in 1999 as a center for liturgical arts in conjunction with traditional monastic standards.

The monastery is presently situated on approximately six acres which includes the Monastery Katholicon, the library of over 6,000 books, the Abbot's quarters, the Metropolitan's Archpastoral apartment, the trapeza, gift shop, candle shop, and bakery. Ground will soon be broken for the artisans' studios.

The monastery is surrounded by beautiful gardens, fountains, and mosaic shrines, very much in the style of the ancient monasteries of Macedonia, Bulgaria, Greece, Serbia, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, and Romania.
