Hieromonk Basil, Hegumen
May his memory be eternal!

Our beloved Hegumen (Superior), Hieromonk Basil, co-founder of Holy Protection Monastery, reposed in the Lord on the feast of St. Andrew the first called Apostle (November 30), at 4:15 in the morning, surrounded by all of his monks and a close friend of the monastery, after a very brief and unanticipated illness.  


Our Mission

Glory to Jesus Christ!

In our monastery 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.

We are a Catholic Monastery of the Byzantine rite, under the jurisdiction of The Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of St. Nicholas in Chicago.


We belong 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.
