Help Prepay the Mortgage!
A monastery is a part of the larger Church. Where monks and nuns withdraw from the world seeking purity of heart and to pray for the entire world, they are by no means isolated spiritually. They are connected to the rest of the Church by means of the local Bishop, the same Faith and living Tradition of all Orthodox Christians. Receiving donations enables interdependence between those in the monastery and those without. The gifts received enable the monastery buildings and systems of livelihood to be created that can serve the entire region for generations to come. The monks and nuns intensify their prayer and labors, not only for themselves, but for those around them that have helped them, and for the entire world.
As a result, prayerfully consider participating with us in paying for and building these two monastic communities.
To make a donation you can either do it online with PayPal* by using one of the links listed below, or write a check to Holy Archangel Michael and All Angels Skete. As part of the Serbian Orthodox Church, we already are under their 501 (c) 3 status, so that all gifts and donations are tax-deductible.
Please send to:
Holy Archangel Michael Skete
P.O. Box 434
Cameron, MO 64429
In addition, as the land is secured, opportunities for pilgrimage and prayer, volunteering in the common work, or simply to take a tour of the monastery will be posted on this website.
Of the $387,000, we currently owe $281,396. The terms for this loan are $300,000 at 7% over a period of 15 years. If we were to pay this off in 5 years, we would save $125,908! If you would like help prepay, please designate in the memo of your check how much of your donation you would like to go towards the mortgage.
