Monastery Church

The monastery chapel is a replica of the historic 1812 Russian Orthodox chapel at Fort Ross, CA. Our temple was declared a California historic landmark in 1986. It holds the monastery's most precious treasures: icons that date from as early as the 14th century, a wonder-working icon of St. Nicholas, and many relics of saints both ancient and modern, including St. Herman of Alaska, St. Seraphim of Sarov, St. Tikhon of Moscow, St. Innocent of North America, St. Nicholas of Japan, St. Panteleimon, St. Nektarios of Aegina, and many others.
