Support our Ministry

Easter Vigil photo by Randy, OHCGifts to Holy Cross Monastery support a host of ministries: we pray, worship, and study; offer hospitality and spiritual direction; preach and do missions; form new monks into this way of life; care for the seasoned monks among us; and practice good stewardship of an important piece of Hudson Valley nature and heritage.

Your gifts enable the continuation of our monastic life in the Hudson Valley. Your financial gifts are tax-deductible. We record and report all financial gifts at quarter’s end and at year-end.

We are deeply grateful for your prayers, your friendship and for your contributions of work and treasury.
