Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ Monastery
A place set apart from the life of the world, yet located in the world.
Nativity Monastery Church Building Fund
We are seeking your financial support for the construction of a Byzantine style church on our 13-acre property located on the monastery land in Kemp, Texas.
Helping us to serve you
This church will serve not only the monastic community, but the Orthodox faithful throughout the North Texas area and our neighboring states by providing a worship space large enough to accommodate the congregations that visit the monastery for festal liturgies and special themed-retreats.
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.
