The Diocese of New Gracanica-Midwestern America of the Serbian Orthodox Church has announced the formation of a new Serbian Orthodox Monastery in central Tennessee. The holy habitation will be dedicated to the Mother of God, Joy of All Who Sorrow.

The monastery will sit on a historic 15-acre property on a beautiful mountain in Monteagle. Diocesan Secretary Hieromonk Serafim (Baltic) has been hard at work organizing the monastic brotherhood. The first monk chosen by His Grace Bishop Longin to join the brotherhood is Hieromonk Mark (Kerr).

The future monastery has an anonymous donor, and several Orthodox volunteers have been working at the property for the past several months.

Although the monastery is under the Serbian Orthodox Church, the intention is to build a pan-Orthodox brotherhood and to serve a pan-Orthodox group of parishioners and pilgrims.
