Glory to Jesus Christ!

We are in process of redesigning a new website. We hope to have it up by Holy Week 2018. Speaking of Holy Week, please click here for the 2018 schedule.

We are a Catholic Monastery of the Byzantine rite, under the jurisdiction of The Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of St. Nicholas in Chicago, and belonging to the Ukrainian Metropoly in the United States of America, which is in union with the Pope of Rome, supreme pastor of the universal Church. We embrace evangelical poverty, chastity, obedience, and stability of life, according to the Rule of Saint Benedict and the traditions of the Christian East.

In our skete at Jacob's Falls, on the shore of Lake Superior in Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula, we devote ourselves to a common life of prayer and work for the praise, love, and service of God and for the upbuilding of His Kingdom through the Arts.

The Transfiguration

Tropar of the Holy Transfiguration

Holy Transfiguration of Our Lord

You were transfigured on the mountain,
O Christ our God,
revealing as much of your glory to your disciples
as they could behold.
Through the prayers of the Mother of God,
let your everlasting light also shine upon us sinners.
O Giver of Light, glory be to You!

Eternal Memory

Hegumen Nicholas

August 8, 1945 - May 26, 2017

Our beloved Hegumen, Hieromonk Nicholas fell asleep in the Lord at 11:30 a.m. on Friday May 26th after a severe illness of nearly two years duration.

After a career in music performance and teaching in the Detroit area, he embraced monastic life in 1983 and came to Eagle Harbor to found the monastery he guided for 33 years until his passing. During his tenure, the monastic community tripled in size and established a thriving business at the Jampot, while the monastery's property grew two hundred fold to encompass some seven hundred acres.

God grant him blessed repose and Eternal Memory.

We celebrate in English, using music traditional to the Ukrainian Catholic Church. Weekend services are also open to the public. Please us if you are interested in attending services at other times.
