The original aim of Mercy House was expanded as it welcomed the founding of a monastic brotherhood. Mercy House would now also be known as The Monastery of St. Mary of Egypt.
This lively and diverse community cherishes both its original home at Mercy House, and also, its second home in the beautiful St. Nicholas Cathedral. As a parish family, the lay membership of Mercy House are thankful to now also be known as the St. Nicholas English-Language Parish.
Treadwell Abbey is a haven for its lay parishioners in New York City, who frequently visit in order to find spiritual respite in this natural paradise. With the vision of becoming a self-sustaining community, the brotherhood is in the early stages of laying a solid foundation for growth—through prayer, spiritual counsel, and labor.
