Welcome to the online home of the Holy Monastic Order En Deus. We are a modern Christian monastic community currently serving the spiritual needs of people from all walks of life, traditions, cultural and religious backgrounds. Our liturgical tradition and practice is both Latin Rite Catholic and Eastern Orthodox in nature, but our theological perspective is a healthy combination of orthodoxy and Valentinianism. Our priests are often bi-ritual and can offer both eastern and western liturgies.
Our apostolic monastic community offers a rich and deeply fulfilling sacramental life. We recognize the completeness of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, of which we are a part through the auspices of Holy Nicholean Catholic Church, and we acknowledge all seven sacraments as having a valid and viable connection to God. Through this process, we are prepared to ordain deacons, deaconesses, and priests to better help serve the monastery and engage the various ministries of service we provide. Through our Bishop and Abbot, the Most Reverend Bryan D. Ouellette, Ph.D., we hold 21 lines of Apostolic Succession [view the lineages].
The Order is currently working tirelessly to secure the building of a physical monastery where monks who wish to live a more direct and deliberate spiritual life can find an environment conducive to mystical insight, prayer, contemplation, and gnosis. This project also involves the eventual management of a retreat center for laity and clergy alike. If you would like to donate to this cause and help make this dream a reality, please go to mindbrainbody.com/ and place a donation for the monastery's vision.
