Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ Monastery
The Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ Monastery is an Orthodox Christian women's monastic community located in Kemp, TX, within the Diocese of the South, Orthodox Church in America. The initial planning for the monastery began in late 2000 with the blessing of His Eminence, Archbishop Dmitri. In 2009, with the blessing of His Beatitude, Metropolitan Jonah, a 13 acre property with an existing house and other buildings was purchased on the feast day of St. Sergius of Radonezh, September 25. The existing house was soon renovated, and a chapel was erected from two former rooms of the house. The chapel was dedicated to St. Nicholas and blessed by His Beatitude on November 28, 2009.

The monastery enjoyed a beautiful feast day celebration with ten clergy, the choir of St. John of Damascus in Tyler, and nearly 200 guests, more than 50 of whom were children. We thank everyone for worshiping and visiting with us as we celebrated our Savior's birth. Many blessings in the new year, and we invite you to come visit us again soon.
