Saint Paul the Apostle Orthodox Monastery  is a monastic community of monks located in the bluffs of rural Southwestern Wisconsin. In the spirit of Saint Paul the Apostle, who brought the Gospel to the nations, we are committed to further sharing Athonite monastic tradition with Christians using the English language. 

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither male nor female, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all.

November 2023

Dear Friends,

We are entering the cooler Fall and Winter months here at Saint Paul’s Monastery. I am overwhelmed and humbled by the generous outpouring of support we have received. Your contributions are a cornerstone in the success of our community.  

Please know that with every gift entrusted to us, I am committed to do the best I can to make the most of what was given. In practical terms, we are working hard to get a building up to house guest rooms and a space for equipment. Plus, we're on a mission to get rid of mobile homes on the property as soon as possible. They've served their purpose (more or less), but it's long past time for them to roll away.

Over the Summer, we were graced with the presence of numerous pilgrims and visitors to our monastery. We also had the ability to produce, package, and ship a multitude of high-quality icons to homes and churches across America. As the Nativity season draws near, we invite you to place your icon orders early to ensure their arrival in good time.

Here’s to the enduring support that keeps the monastery going. We are making progress every day, and your help remains the key to our success. Your generosity fuels our life of prayer and joins you to this holy work: building a flourishing English language monastery in the lineage of Elder Ephraim and Saint Joseph the Hesychast.   

With heartfelt gratitude,

+Father Menas

We venerate thee with gladness, O preacher of the Gentiles and thrice great star, teacher of the Athenians and splendor of the world. We honor thy struggles and tortures suffered on behalf of Christ, and thy sacred martyrdom. O Holy Apostle Paul, intercede with Christ God that our souls be saved.
