Help Support the Founding of a Maronite Monastery in Washington State.


We are the Maronite Monks of Jesus, Mary         and Joseph, a new monastic order established in 2011. Our small group of Maronite Catholic monks purchased 65 acres of land in Castle Rock Washington, in late December of 2014.    

Plans are underway to begin building the Sacred Heart Monastery.  The structures of the Monastery  will consist of a Chapel and living quarters for 10-20 men living the monastic life in community.

Why a Monastery ?

“The world needs God—not just any god but the God of Jesus Christ, the God who made himself flesh and blood, who loved us to the point of dying for us, who rose and created within himself room for man.” - Pope Benedict XVI

This merciful God lives in his Church, and we in him.

A monastery is a uniquely evident sign of God’s loving presence with us and an effective instrument of his merciful intention toward us, which Jesus Christ perfectly communicates to his people.
