We are the Maronite Monks of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, a new monastic order established in 2011. Our small group of Maronite Catholic monks purchased 65 acres of land in Castle Rock Washington, in late December of 2014.

Plans are underway to begin building the Sacred Heart Monastery.  The structures of the Monastery will consist of a Chapel and living quarters for 10-20 men living the monastic life in community.

Why a Monastery?

Because, according to Pope Benedict XVI, “the world needs God—not just any god but the God of Jesus Christ, the God who made himself flesh and blood, who loved us to the point of dying for us, who rose and created within himself room for man.” This merciful God lives in his Church, and we in him.

A monastery is a uniquely evident sign of God’s loving presence with us and an effective instrument of his merciful intention toward us, which Jesus Christ perfectly communicates to his people.

Won't you Join us in making this most spiritually important project a reality?


Your donations are what makes this monastery become a reality.
Our prayers for you and your loved ones are our thanksgiving to you.

Please consider creating a recurring donation to support the monastery.

We also have a GoFundMe Campaign to spread the word about Sacred Heart Maronite Monastery.
