A Monastery in Rural Georgia under the Omophorion of Metropolitan Hilarion, First-Heirarch of the Russian Church Abroad

In the monastic tradition of the Orthodox Christian Church as established by St. Anthony of the Desert and others; the Monastery of the Glorious Ascension is an intentional Orthodox Monastic Community of female monastics who have entered into a renunciation of secular life and have embraced the journey towards holiness in a life dedicated to prayer, work & contemplation. 

A parish community is hosted by the monastery that is growing in both numbers and faith that is welcoming to all who come to experience the ancient Christian Faith that has been handed down to us from the Apostles to this very day.
