Holy Cross Orthodox Monastery Mono is a Christian congregation serving the Mono community and seeking, engaging, and encouraging others through a life-changing Christian journey.

Holy Cross Orthodox Monastery at Mono, Ontario seeks to be a loving, friendly community that worships God, and serves others. We place a high priority on teaching from the Bible and following the example of Jesus.
Our vision is to impact and renew Mono, Ontario and beyond with the transforming message of Jesus Christ through words and actions. Everyone is welcome. Come as you are – we’d love to get to know you.

The Orthodox Monastery “Holy Cross” is under the spiritual and ecclesiastical authority (omofor) of His Grace, Bishop Ioan Casian, of the Romanian Orthodox Diocese of Canda.


Our Mission is to offer the testimony of monastic life within our secular and multi-cultural society. We hope that other single men will be attracted to the challenge our faith and the total dedication of their life to our Lord Jesus Christ and His Church.


Our small monastery is supported mostly by the Romanian community. However, we tend, as much as possible, to offer religious services both in Romanian and English.
