St. Sabbas Orthodox Monastery, located in Harper Woods, Michigan, is a monastery of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad, directly under His Eminence Metropolitan HILARION. The monastery follows the patristic Julian calendar. The monastery was founded in 1999 as a center for liturgical arts in conjunction with traditional monastic standards.
The monastery is presently situated on approximately six acres which includes the Monastery Katholicon, the library of over 6,000 books, the Abbot's quarters, the trapeza, shop and candle making. Ground will soon be broken for the artisans' studios.
The monastery is surrounded by beautiful gardens, fountains, and mosaic shrines, very much in the style of the ancient monasteries of Jerusalem, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Greece, Serbia, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, and Romania.
