The Orthodox Monastery of the Transfiguration


The Orthodox Monastery of the Transfiguration online chapel ministry began during Great Lent 2013 to provide live streaming and recordings of chapel services for those who are elderly, ill, or infirm and are not able to attend services at their parish. They broadcast select services LIVE from their chapel on YouTube. The services can be viewed for a few days on YouTube. After that, only select Liturgies and Feast Days are archived on YouTube. If you are using a mobile device, you may need to download the YouTube app for live viewing.  Click Here to watch.

The Orthodox Monastery of the Transfiguration is a monastery for women under the jurisdiction of The Orthodox Church in America. It was founded in 1967 by Mother Alexandra (the former Princess Ileana of Romania) whose dream it was to provide a place where American Orthodox women from all ethnic backgrounds could come to live the monastic life and benefit from a liturgical cycle in English. Since that time, her vision has been fulfilled. The nuns, many of whom are converts to Orthodoxy, as well as the monastery’s many visitors, span a variety of backgrounds. We welcome a great number of non-Orthodox visitors as well.

Mother Benedicta, our second abbess, arrived from Varatec Monastery in Romania in 1978. Under Mother Benedicta’s leadership a complete cycle of liturgical prayer was established and the strong monastic tradition she had lived in her homeland took root as well. Mother Christophora, the current abbess, was elected in 1987, and since then the monastery has continued to develop, both spiritually and physically.
