A place set apart from the life of the world, yet located in the world.


About Our Monastery

A Christian Orthodox Monastery

The Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ Monastery is an Orthodox Christian women's monastic community located in Kemp, TX, within the Diocese of the South, Orthodox Church in America. The Nativity Of our Lord Jesus Christ Monastery was activated as a monastic community in 2009 by Archbishop Dmitri and Metropolitan Jonah of the OCA. The 12.45 acre property consists of a farm house (hosting the current sister's quarters and St. Nicholas Chapel)  and a recently renovated meeting and retreat center.
